Synopsis

This article points out that Madí art, which agrees with the general mood of integration being encouraged by scientific advances, is a style that embraces all disciplines and, furthermore, proposes the need to communicate by means of a language that has a tendency to expand. The Madí group also believes in an idea which—when understood as a form of research into the creative process—tends to revolutionize the very act of creating, and appeals to all areas that are accessible via the intellect.

Synopsis

O artigo destaca que a arte Madí — de acordo com a sua integração imposta pelo desenvolvimento científico — é um estilo que abrange todas as disciplinas. Nesse sentido, a necessidade de comunicar a sua totalidade é postulada através de uma linguagem que procura se ampliar, mantendo um conceito que, entendido enquanto pesquisa do processo criador, deseja revolucionar até o ato mesmo de criação . Eis a procura que apela a todas as zonas atingíveis pela via do intelecto.
