Photos: 40 West's new sci-fi exhibition explores the future through art

"Discovery -- The Time Orb," Maureen Collins
Science fiction can refer to space travel, time travel, futuristic technology, mutations and any other scenarios loosely based on science. 40 West Arts District will be exploring these different interpretations of sci-fi at its second annual Fall Arts Harvest exhibition, which opens tomorrow, October 15. "We have scientists who are artists in our group who bring a different sensibility around technology and space," says 40 West's Julie Byerlein. "We asked people to channel their inner [Isaac] Asimov, if you will, and kind of just think about, 'What does that translate to in any medium?'"
