Artist Ken Fandell discusses his work in the context of the Berman Museum of Art exhibition Science Fiction. This exhibition features the work of international artists who were all born in the 1960s and 70s, when the line between science and fiction seemed to blur in unprecedented ways: satellites routinely orbited the earth and began to send data back to scientists about the mysterious expanses of the universe, the Space Race was in full swing, and, in 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first person to set foot on the surface of the moon. Today, this line seems to blur once again as science and technology relentlessly reach into new territories.
Consideration of the relationship between the arts and sciences, and between fact and fiction, are particularly timely today. Science Fiction strives to recognize and analyze the dynamic relationship between fact and fiction, as well as the critical role that art and science play in the future of our planet.
