distinction between art that is interdisciplinary and art that is transdisciplinary

Transvergence in Art History

Transvergence creates a distinction between art that is interdisciplinary and art that is transdisciplinary. In interdisciplinary pursuits, disciplines collaborate. Scientists and artists, commonly regarded as ideologically opposed practitioners, can intersect and contemplate their common relationships. However, these interacting disciplines ultimately retain their identities as isolated from each other. Transdisciplinary projects also have an agenda to explore common practices among disciplines, but with a more holistic approach. By transcending conventional notions of what appropriate activities within a discipline are, participants attempt to bridge disciplines in innovative ways. The result is that new commonalities are discovered among disciplines, which have implications for future innovative transvergent events.

conquering the cosmos

without comments

Solaris, Tarkvsky 1972

“We have no ambition to conquer any cosmos.
We just want to extend Earth up to the Cosmos’s borders.
We don’t want any more worlds.
Only a mirror to see our own in.
We try so hard to make contact, but we’re doomed to failure.
We look ridiculous pursuing a goal we fear and that we really don’t need.
Man needs man!”
