> DESCRIPTION


Towards A Warm Math will be comprised of works that mingle strategies and forms borrowed from the hard-edged fields of science, mathematics, and technology with qualities and approaches that are more expressly humanistic—works, in other words, that attempt to muddy the pellucid water of stubborn facts and with unruly sediments of the personal, the biomorphic, and the spiritual. They are works that act as solvents, softening the normally rigid demarcation lines that divide the perpetually warring disciplinary camps of our thought, and dissolving the walls erected between the realms of the subjective and the objective.

However, this act of blurring boundaries should not suggest the privileging of a single position. There is no attempt, here, to tear down the austere edifice of the sciences, or to whip art into shape. Rather, the works in the show merely embody an interweaving of the hard and the soft, the computational and the poetic, and assert the fluid, often idiosyncratic methodologies of their makers.

The exhibition title is borrowed from Lucas Blalock’s book of the same name, which includes an essay by John Houck. Available at Hassla Books
