Where Art and Science Intersect: Experimentation in Color

“Fundamentally, both art and science are about encounters with the real world — the one we live in and experience as colors, textures, shapes and sounds. Every artistic creation and every scientific study is a record of experimentation. At their best those experiments are rooted in two vital qualities: interest and attention…  Interest and attention allow us to live lives that are rich in meaning, lives that are passionate about noticing the everyday miracles right in front of us.”

-“Where Art and Science Meet, Exactly,” Adam Frank

My little Sawyer is a scientist.  He is an artist.  And he doesn’t have a problem with blending the two.  Hopefully his little world will stay creative like this forever.  Hopefully he never gets the message that we have to be one thing or the other.  Or really one of anything, totally.

A few weeks ago, he ordered a science kit online and one of the projects was to blend colored water in test tubes.  He sat in the bathtub and made his science project into an artistic expression- a temporary rainbow.
