The Shavian serpent’s “You see things and you say ‘Why?’, but I dream things that never were and say, ‘Why Not,” might just be a reflection on the difference between science and engineering. Or an argument for transgressing, in the service of creation, the natural/unnatural boundary.

Nadrian Seeman of NYU, who builds nanoscopic stick figures, devices and patterned arrays out of DNA, and choreographer Rachel Cohen and artist Agata Oleksiak, who play with potential and actuality of the human body through movement, clown and mask, costume, and film, explore this theme in Roald Hoffmann’s May 4 Entertaining Science at the Cornelia Street Café.
