Movement, Time & Space - Art Created without Boundaries - OK Deadline: September 17, 2017. Art Created Without Boundaries- Exhibition Concept: Both science and art have defined and redefined "Movement, Time & Space" throughout history. Art views movement, time and space as elements to be used to imply a sense of place within the context of time in a work of art, while science uses the same terms to define the vastness of the universe and mankind’s place in it. Both approaches define movement, time and space differently yet they are the same because they are used to create an illusion so that observers of art and science can experience the reality we know as life. Creativity is the common bond between art and science but the outcomes of creativity for art is that it is a starting point to diverge toward more possibilities. Creativity in science converges ideas to synthesize the one solutions or outcome to a problem. This month’s theme, "Movement, Time & Space" challenges the artist to think both inside and outside of the box to produce fantastic approaches to creativity and possibly discover science and life in the process. Artists may render traditional approaches or step out of normal art genre to create a new world encompassing science and experimental theory.
