Nicolas Strappini’s work investigates how physical science apparatus and experimental equipment can be used alongside printmaking and many other mark-making processes to form novel artworks. The formations that he creates appear to be self-authoring and generative, and use techniques that are to some degree dependent on natural, random processes.
BioBAT Art Space is the first exhibition space in New York City that is entirely dedicated to the intersection of Art and Science. Their inaugural art exhibit, ‘Spontaneous Emergence of Order’ features four interdisciplinary artists who create works based in science and technology.
Spontaneous emergence of order is a form of self-organization out of seeming chaos, the organic forming of systems mastered by no one person or thing, but the unfolding, natural order of a collective of events and actions. The four artists in this exhibit are sifting through this ordered chaos and creating their own new order based on their findings. Whether their interest is in the biological or the technological their artworks are all connected through the messiness of life itself and our connections to the natural world.
