Seeing Science in Art with Professor Paul Fishwick
February 16, 2017
Town Hall, 3rd Floor
Marcel Proust wrote “The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes; in seeing the universe through the eyes of another.”
Proust’s quote is central to the function of art, which involves multiple perspectives on ideas, concepts, and physical objects. Drawing on works in the Nasher collection, Fishwick
will unearth narratives aligned with engineering, computer science, chemistry or mathematics. Using artistic works located in Southlake, Professor Fishwick will unearth narratives
aligned with engineering, computer science, chemistry or mathematics.
Join UTD professor Paul Fishwick for an examination of the role that science can play in offering additional perspectives on art.
