In the normal mind, art and medicine would be thought of as two completely
different entities. Art can be very nonfigurative through the eyes of the average person. There are many different directions one may go with art. Unlike art medicine is quite established and there are only is only one way to go about it, which is through knowledge. Awhile back, medicine became known for being an art, and if any instruments or technology were used during the surgical practices, then it was known that the art of medicine became lost.

As a baseball player the first thing that comes to my mind with mind, art, and medicine is Tommy Johnny surgery. This surgery is a well-known treatment done on a pitchers arm. This surgery has miraculously saved many baseball players in the last 10 years, changing the game.

            According to the intro, the main reason for the new medicine is the Nano-technology, which also relates back to the robots assignment last week. These advancements are proven to be evolving through the use of x-rays, which are a big part in our scientific and medical field the last 15 years. The best example I could find of the relations between art and medicine is the “museum man”, Gurther Von Hagens. He brought together the art of science by displaying them in an art center.

Robotics and art are seen more and more as technology keeps upgrading. The main reason for art in robotics is the industrial revolution. During this period of time, machinery started to become manufactured in the early to mid 1800s. Then the second industrial revolution involved steel and electricity, which help create the robotics in all cultures. The revolution also brought jobs around the world through mass production, making robotics and art a key component throughout history.

            The Japanese are one of the first cultures to benefit from the industrial revolution. Through Japanese robotic creations they have created consistent repetition with they way the robotics are made according to Professor Machiko Kusahara. With the toy robots sold to little children, their main consistent idea was to create a friendly face for the children to see. Which can also relate to how important they made aesthetics important in their creations. Another Asian culture that as benefitted were the Chinese, with the creation of the printing press. The printing press became one of the most important pieces of machinery made. It brought a simpler way of communication amongst people.

            The art within machinery that I have seen is through movies like WALL-E. WALL-E is a movie about an animated robot that looks for the good in the world, trying to save humanity. I enjoyed this movie because it relates to the real world on how machines help humans these days amongst our daily live. The renovation of machinery is what makes general things full of art.

Math and art are seen throughout Los Angeles and also in the classroom. However, there are many correspondences that go unobserved. All of the art in the world has math involved in with it as well. For example, if I were told to draw a picture of the UCLA baseball field (or any field for that instance) the proportions would not be equivalent to the field’s actual measurements. However, when the specific dimensions are known and you know what it takes to draw, it becomes more realistic with math formulas.

Math and art is a universal language known amongst everyone. It is seen in shapes, perspective, and architecture as shown in the example of the UCLA baseball field. Shapes found throughout our daily lives use a mathematical formula to calculate their formal to make each shape. The perspective of math and art is mainly seen by the linear formulation according to the lectures. The parallel lines on the plane of shapes help distinguish its figure. The length of the object computes these shapes, while they are controlled by the position of the spectators. Lastly, architecture directly relates to math and art because of the science of optics. For example, the Sydney Opera is one of the most iconic pieces of architecture around. The optics are important because different lighting can change a person’s perspective on the architecture.

The fascinating facet of math and art is that they are both individually different but together they work very well with one another. What makes them so special is that they are both able to coexist between one another and boost the creativity of each other.

Basketball as a whole doesn’t appear to be enveloped in art and science, but when you look at the analytics you see a game full of different art forms. Also, looking at the game from the outside you see many art forms. Professional basketball represents art through the entertainment that it brings to fans. Also, the art of the NBA logo of Jerry West driving to the basket is their universal sign. Another art form is the way these NBA players dress before a game has started. It usually consists of style, flash, and some “swag”. Russell Westbrook is the player that is most well known for his pregame outfits, this represents art because of the statement he makes before and after a game. The science of basketball is also easily found throughout the sport. A guard’s shot is all based on science, and with the perfect form and angle of the ball the shot can be perfected. One of the best players, Stephen Curry, has a shot that is constantly taken between 50- 55 degrees, which seems to be the most accurate degree a ball can be shot at. He also can get a shot off in .4 tenths of a second, which is the quickest release point in the NBA. This is how the two cultures of art and science are found in the game of basketball.
