Einstein and Picasso.
I've talked before about Clifford Will's lecture but I didn't have time to talk about Arthur Miller's intriguing parallel between Einstein's and Picasso's major creations, life, thinking, character and source of creativity. Arthur Miller's, presentation is a real treat. You'll learn about the similarities between the creation of Relativity Theory and the first cubist painting Les_Demoiselles d'Avignon.
Here are some of the ideas that I learned: don't always trust perception, conception is important both in science and in art; the notion of simultaneity preoccupied both giants (Einstein's simultaneity is temporal while Picasso's is spatial); Einstein started the modern era in science while Picasso started the modern era in art; they both had the same sources of creativity: geometry (for multidimensional representations), technology, science, aesthetics(in science and in art), etc.
