The philosophy of Henri-Louis Bergson (18 October 1859 – 4 January 1941)
emphasises pure mobility, unforeseeable novelty, creativity and freedom; thus one can characterize his system as a process philosophy. It touches upon such topics as time and identity, free will, perception, change, memory, consciousness, language, the foundation of mathematics and the limits of reason… [Bergson] was a major French philosopher, influential especially in the first half of the 20th century. [He] convinced many thinkers that immediate experience and intuition are more significant than rationalism and science for understanding reality.
This exhibition shows how art and science can go hand in hand, that scientists apply intuition and creativity to their science and that some scientists are also practicing artists. For example Andy Leigh and Antonia Posada, whose work appears in this show, are trained and practiced in art and science. The more I get to know scientists the more see their art!
