The Leonardian dream : tempting completeness by a special interweaving of art and science

Author: Csaji, Attila

Keywords: Art and science
Art and science--Exhibitions

Issue Date: 2014-01

Publisher: National Council of Science Museums, Kolkata

Description: Hungarian-Indian cultural cooperation, held a series of exhibitions which were realized in the recent past, at the network of the National Gallery of Modern Arts, in Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai, which wore the following title: 'From Organic Forms to Light Art' (a selection of contemporary Hungarian art). Organic forms imply the nature and the need of integrity; 'light art' as a definition is unusual, it stops you and makes you think. Light is the basic cause of visibility – at the fine arts it is indispensable. It is an integral part of everyday life, but something else also resides within it. It is one of the greatest human experiences – it radiates devotion or even adoration, purification and ascension. It is a research subject for scientists and it can create an elevating sacral experience at the same time. But does the light not only make the objects visible but also create art in a direct way? The light experiences of nature suggest such since ancient times.
