These entwined ideas – which underlie Occam's Razor – form a thread that links the realms of science and art. Scientists rely on Occam's Razor, which holds that simpler explanations, all things being equal, are better than more complex ones, to refine their theories and experiments.

With reference to Occam's Razor, the interdisciplinary discourse presented by Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts and the !dea Gallery at the Ontario Science Centre in this exhibition, seeks to narrow the cultural divide between Art and Science.
