For the last two years, Motorola Solution’s artist in residence, Sebastien Johnson, has been researching the correlations between Art History’s great innovators and contemporary engineering. Here are the results presented in a video essay.

Art and engineering have been correlated since the renaissance times, and even as art began to modernize, their correlations were only enhanced. Today, the interest between these two fields is as important as it has ever been. As long as we live in a world where innovation is needed, art and engineering will fundamentally be connected. Creative thinking, challenging past traditions, and constant progression lay at the core of both fields; these qualities will have an everlasting impact on our future.
