"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. So the unknown, the mysterious, is where art and science meet."

Albert Einstein

 

Science and art naturally overlap. Both are a means of investigation. Both involve ideas, theories, and hypotheses that are tested in places where mind and hand come together—the laboratory and studio.

 

Artists, like scientists, study—materials, people, culture, history, place— and learn to transform information into something else. The Earth Stewardship Initiative proposes that both artists and scientists play a vital part in studying and shaping the environment around us. The ESI Demonstration Projects in Sacramento and in Baltimore employed art as a teaching tool, a means of communication, and a way of pushing ecologists and designers to new and innovative ideas.
