THE CENTER FOR INNOVATION IN TEACHING AND LEARNING PRESENTS
ORDER OUT OF CHAOS: THINKING BIBLICALLY ABOUT ART< DESIGN< COMPOSITION AND ENGINEERING
October 10, 2014 12-1 pm
In this interactive Lunch and Learn, Christian visual artist Dayton Castleman, who does his large scale sculpture with blow torches and power tools, will discuss the surprisingly close connection between a biblical perspective on art and a biblical perspective on other types of composition, engineering, and design. Dayton will investigate the ways that humans engaged in processes of design share in God’s creative work that brings order to chaos by dividing, multiplying, and stratifying the material stuff of creation. Anyone interested in creativity, engineering, design, building, composition, or a Christian perspective on work in general, will enjoy this lively conversation that will encourage us to think more deeply about the Christian nature of our innovative and creative work.
