Art and Science entangled

“To those who do not know mathematics it is difficult to get across a real feeling as to the beauty, the deepest beauty, of nature" ...  .....  Richard Feynman

"After a certain high level of technical skill is achieved, science and art tend to coalesce in esthetics, plasticity, and form. The greatest scientists are always artists as well."  .....  Albert Einstein

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science,” - Albert Einstein

“I am motivated by the beauty of math. I think of math as art in some senses. I don't think about how useful my research results are, but focus on the pursuit of beauty and coming up with simple and clean solutions to problems.”  -  Caltech Professor of Mathematics   Lu Wang

"I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty. I mean it’s not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there’s also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. It adds a question: does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower. It only adds. I don’t understand how it subtracts."

Richard Feynman, in BBC Interview (1981)

Activities in both science and art are part of what the center is all about.
