Is the Art and Science Movement Hogwash?

Click here for some interesting dialogue on the Art and Science Movement.
Jean-Marc Leblonde criticizes the math art movement with some pretty interesting views.

Kaz --
The balance between mathematics and art is on my min always and I like your see-saw illustration and appreciate the link you have provided. I would love to hear more from you about the San Diego meetings -- I saw the poetry program, with your name on it. Since next year's JMM is near me, in Baltimore, I probably will be able to attend.
All best,
JoAnne

Thanks JoAnne - Maybe I could write something up about the Poetry Reading - I think there were about 30 people there.

There are so many angles to discuss the matter but to me this reads as an opening. The first angle to mind is that art and science share basic structure in that they each divide into their own leading edge and own beyond (or past). Of course the leading edges entertain mutual dialogues, but as leading edges they forget them, while each (by any measure oblivious of the other, for the least) has covered an incredible amount of terrain over the 20th Century. So it is totally insufficient to claiming global phase with current overall culture, to be up to date one the one side while over a good century late on the other.

That is, unless we take the choice of denying present time, and so declare nonexistent any global clock pacing the act of being perfectly up to date.
