ART AND COMPLEXITY

J. Casti, A. Karlqvist

ISBN 0444509445
Pages 180

Description
This title is the result of a one-week workshop sponsored by the Swedish research agency, FRN, on the interface between complexity and art. Among others, it includes discussions on whether "good" art is "complex" art, how artists see the term "complex", and what poets try to convey in word about complex behavior in nature.
