The Director of The Imaginary Foundation had longed dream of creating a physical environment to portray the wondrous intersection of Science and Art. Whilst fine tuning his symmetrical harmony inducer one night, he remembered the words of Leonard Shlain that so eloquently describe this concept in his book, Art and Physics: Parallel Visions in Space, Time, and Light. At this moment, The Director experienced an astonishing clarity of vision, which lead to this installation, The Undivided Mind.

"The artist and scientist may at first seem strange bedfellows. Of the many human disciplines, there are few that could seem more divergent. The artist employs image and metaphor; the scientist uses number and equation. Art creates illusions meant to evoke emotion, while science engages in the pursuit of empirical verification.…" There is, to some degree, a physiological cause for this apparent divergence: the two halves, or hemispheres, of the brain.

The right side of the brain is responsible for emotions and intuition, the left for logic and reason. Yet the notion of two brains gives rise to the function of one mind. Perhaps it is this one “undivided mind” that presents a way forward through the monumental cultural changes we now face, enabling us to surf this dynamic moment in history from a platform of balance and symmetry.

This installation endeavors to fuse the aesthetic beauty of art and science in order to create a synthesis of mind, one which is as much rational as it is fantastic. Think of this undivided mind as a prototype of human possibility—an evolutionary signal of convergence, harmony, and accelerated progress. The rest is up to us.
