Living in the architecturally diverse location of LA, specifically UCLA, connections between art and science can be seen regularly. The scientific methods of architectural engineering are combined with an artistic touch to create many of the buildings that UCLA students are more than familiar with such as Royce, Powell, and Kerckhoff.
After readings Bohm’s work on creativity, and observing the photos of the Hellgate Bridge and Kerckhoff Hall, my perspective of the relationship between Science and Art drastically changed. Bohm mentions how the creativity of scientists and authors are peculiarly similar in that both are trying express and validate their own original ideas. By adopting this creative perspective, I can further my skills as a student. It will force me to see the world in a different way by not favoring either science in art in my thinking.
