A few years ago, I interviewed a roboticist at a San Francisco startup whose team was made up of engineers as well as artists. I asked him how important the artists were to his company, and he replied simply that, without his creative team of artists, the engineers would build things that no one could understand and use. His statement was a concrete example of one of the most powerful roles of the arts: to connect the logical and technical with the emotional and spiritual. Without this balance, we only scratch the surface of our human potential. Art is Power is dedicated to showcasing and replicating these powerful examples of humanity at its best.
