In 2012 the Republic of Italy awarded the Giorgio Napolitano Medal to the quantum biology scientists, Professor Massimo Pregnolato and Professor Paolo Manzelli. Together with the Science-Artist, Roberto Denti, they fused the work of the Science-Art Centre of Australia into the format of their 21st Century Renaissance.
The Australian artists involved were Robert Pope and Robert Todonai.
During their residency at the University of Sydney in 1986 their Science-Art theories brought about an uproar on campus.
In 1988 Dr Calvin Miller, the science writer for the Australian Medical Observer investigated this controversial matter. His feature article, published by the journal, successfully predicted that the artists’ research would later become associated with a New Renaissance.
In 1990 the world’s largest technological research institute (IEEE in Washington) reprinted the Centre’s first major optics discovery from the Italian journal, Il Nuovo Cimento, as an important discovery of the 20th Century. It was acclaimed alongside such names as Louis Pasteur and Sir Francis Crick.
Recently the painting entitled The Biosphere Energy Flow, by Robert Pope, was represented by the world famous Park West Galleries in Michigan.
The Science-Art Research Centre has made yet another major optics discovery. Salvador Dali’s stereoscopic paintings were deprecated by scientists for not resonating with the viewers’ vision. His painting Geoploiticus Child is an important aspect of new quantum biology neurological research.
The philosopher, Immanuel Kant, had written that ethical evolution was guided by an “asymmetrical electromagnetic” inner stereoscopic functioning of the creative artistic mind. By viewing Dali’s stereoscopic painting through Kantian asymmetrical electromagnetic glasses the artist’s ethical scientific message becomes visible, as it does with the Centre’s artists and with Roberto Denti’s paintings.
