Art holds the disciplines together and keeps us attuned to shifts in reality, Harvey Seifter says. Artists have a head start on the transformation of the world.
Seifter sees the “wicked problems” we have as “failures of the imagination. The ones who have dealt with them the best are the ones who have approached things from a non-linear place, a place where ambiguity is tolerated and leveraged, where radical unpredictability is built into the DNA of how organizations address challenge. Artists have been doing these things for a very long time.”
