“Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.”
― Frank Herbert, Dune

We are asking artists to explore order and disorder through their artwork. Order and disorder are an integral part of the natural world. There are many ways to interpret the meaning of order and disorder in art. The laws of physical world tell us that orderly states move toward randomness, disorder, and dissolution.
Humans use order to understand the environment around them. Art is called orderly when an observer sees the overall structure and can see what is alike and what is different and understand the relationships between the parts and the whole.
Disorder involves pushing the possibilities of order to the extreme, until the shape will simply succumb to disintegration.
Order and disorder are complementary, interconnected, and mutually dependent on each other. Without the potential of disorder, nothing in the world would ever change.
