nexus : node

‘there is no indication of success up to now in the bringing together of art and science. to achieve success the artist must be spiritually at home in the field of science so he can think and feel in the same way as the scientist. a spiritual union, not a technical one, is requested.’
(naum gabo – studio international – vol.178, p.64, 1969)
