Historical Context:
For Rebecca Mott, science and art are two very similar fields of study. As she states, “"Both are careful examinations of ideas or theories resulting in more questions and further study. They both involve an intensity of focus and perseverance, even though results are uncertain. The scientist and the artist are explorers, urged on by irrepressible curiosity, who often find that their biggest discoveries arrive through a leap of imagination preceded, of course, by a lot of hard work."
