The scientists of the old times had tried to cath the unknown in its base, they had been sure it could be defined using their own subjective systems of symbols.

Artist's Statement:

The aims and methods of science and art are different, the first one requires objectivity, while the second one is inseparable from subjectivism. Once the archaic sciences objectivity had been parallel with a strongly intuitive, subjective researc method. The scientists of the old times had tried to cath the unknown in its base, they had been sure it could be defined using their own subjective systems of symbols /e.g. alchemy, medication,astronomy/. They did not care too much of the details, they searched for meaning and essence in an abstrract way, man's full dissolution in nature, alchemic conjuction.

  1. I love the art, but I have a little problem with the text.

    "The aims and methods of science and art are different, the first one requires objectivity, while the second one is inseparable from subjectivism."

    Seems cold and empty to me.
