Art is, in so many ways, a reection of reality, its glorication as well as its challenger, in an instinctive understanding thatnothing is stable despite the eort to keep a balance between the comfort of belief and the delusion of control. Art and scienceinterrelations are not always clear and one could have the impression that the artist seems more permeable to the inuence ofscience than the scientist to the inuence of art. Art’s playfully transgressive nature oers creative bypasses to the grammar
of science and expands the dialogue with its openness to a multiplicity towards the new. Nevertheless, art – albeit its originary
anity with the taboo – is never completely liberated from moral considerations. Deeply involved into this lively discourse on the
nature of the taboo, art becomes the very domain of contemporary experimentation with transgression, in order to provoke andsparkle discourse, catalyzing possible forms of transcendence.
