ARTISTRY IN THE INFORMATION AGE (A PRIMER)
Shores of Space-Time
Transitioning into this current millennia with information at our fingertips, it’s the interplay between any and all ideas which will foster the vanguard. Perhaps, the most essential quality of the Information Age is its interdisciplinary nature. In considering an interplay between scientific advancements and wisdom traditions, for instance, artistic expression in modernity can be deeply affected, both paralleling, and indicative of, humanity's spiritual evolution (Doctor Eamonn Healy gives an evocative soliloquy on the telescoping nature of this evolution in Richard Linklater’s 2001 film, Waking Life).
In this new age, innovations in traditional perspectives on the mechanics of reality brings concepts like space and time under re-inspection. The perceptivity by which human beings navigate reality has largely been informed by an Issac Newtonian mode of thinking, establishing its foundation for the physical sciences (key word: physical) during the Scientific Revolution (beginning around the 14th Century). The world has been unequivocally tumultuous since, with its ample compounding of warfare and social growing pains throughout the 20th Century. This transition into our burgeoning age of information—emboldened by its evolutionary strides in technology, research and rhetoric—is an opportunity to transparently apply what we’ve learned through the guises and polarities of his-story. The implications of deepening and broadening purviews on the faculties of reality (featuring the integration of ideas in quantum science, and the Western popularization of Eastern wisdom traditions like yoga or Buddhism) prove markedly revelatory, with the inherent potential to considerably mitigate the constrictions of a strictly Newtonian worldview....
