Glass in the Fourth Dimension
|Date||Wednesday, December 16, 2020|
|Time||10:00am - 5:00pm (7h)|
|Location||Harris – Burger Gallery|
While we live in a three-dimensional world and our brains are trained to see height, width, and depth—mathematicians, physicists, and artists have long considered the fourth dimension and its possibilities for alternative realities. Although authors and scientists have sought to describe the concept, it is inherently intangible and invisible. Einstein defined it as “spacetime,” a mathematical model that fuses the three dimensions of space and the one dimension of time into four dimensions. Philosophers consider a metaphysical meaning, seeing it as the connection between the mind and reality. Artists since the early 20th century tried to represent the fourth dimension, moving beyond realistic representations of the world toward abstraction.
