23 Sandy Gallery is pleased to present Infinite Possibilities, and juried exhibition of artist books featuring works from 46 artists from across the US, Canada and Australia.
The subjects of art, math, and science aren’t nearly as disparate as they sometimes seem. By those in the know, meaning those left-brained, analytical types, math and science are often viewed and described in artistic terms: the eloquence of an equation, the beauty of a concept. And as those right-brained, creative types can attest, critical exploration will often result in unique creations and unexpected discoveries. To all subjects, the spark of imagination is essential.
Infinite Possibilities shows us how math and science can be used as a source of artistic inspiration to book artists who are thinking creatively about such topics. Taking a wide range of approaches—from serious to humorous—participating artists explore mechanical and theoretical concepts extracted from a diverse range of scientific fields: from mathematics to medicine, space, architecture, engineering, physics, genetics, botany, biology, and more.
