Artist and curator Ewen Chardronnet and Art Historian Fabrice Lapelletrie discuss the work of Frank Malina. They mention the importance of the work of Theremin, Wilfred and other artists interested in the connections between sound and images in the 20s and 30s. The role of the cultural imagination as a science driver is developed, as well as how imagination intervenes in scientific discovery with the work of mathematician Cedric Villani for instance. Chardronnet reads from a letter of Frank Malina from 1946 which discusses ideas of deep connections between the arts and sciences and the idea of 'inherent rightness". Lapelletrie discusses the work of experimental psychologist Albert Michotte.
