Statement: Connecting Science and Art Albert Einstein once wrote: The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. That mystery is the source of all art and science. In that conundrum; science and art are twins, exploring the source of a thousand questions. These twins approach problems with a similar open-mindedness. Both share that magnificent moment when the great mystery comes into Light and the artist and scientist must put their vision into form. In this three dimensional art series, the light bulb represents that shared moment of discovery. All that surrounds the Light is the effort to take form.
