Psychic life: activity; intelligence; affectivity

Psychic life:  activity;  intelligence; affectivity.

Huge advances in the sciences are to decrease the influence of social the component of affectivity.

  This causes an imbalance negatively on the people.

  As is known fine art is one of the means which should be used, especially for reducing the stress.

In this regard I believe the practice of Bioptical Art have advantages.

Answers I didn't get from the Art World!

Some time back I read an article in which "an art expert" had given "advice" to all artists on how to become great artists and get recognition. He even wrote a book on this! Although I didn't read the book, I read the important points of the book in a review. One of the advices he gave was - an artist should paint or create lots of works in his life time to become a great artist and get recognition and that s/he should paint at least one picture  a day throughout his/her life time! He says…

How science is associated with aesthetics especially in relation to art

Science isn't something that comes from somewhere to spoil the aesthetics of art. Science is the art of understanding why we feel the way we do when we see something wonderful and beautiful. It enhances the beauty of art by trying to understand it fully. The 'measurements' of science can also be used to 'criticize' art.

Aesthetics can be defined as pertaining to…

How Science and Art deal with Mystery

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed - Albert Einstein



Was Einstein talking like an artist or a scientist when he said those words?

What is a mystery actually?

It is anything that is kept secret or remains unexplained or unknown, like the mysteries of nature.…

Evolution and aesthetics - the science of art creation and appreciation

Why do humans take pleasure in creating art? Or enjoy a beautiful painting? In his 2009 book The Art Instinct, philosopher Denis Dutton suggests that art is a need built into our systems, a complex and subtle evolutionary adaptation comparable to our facility for language. We humans evolved to love art because it helps us survive; for example, a well-expressed appreciation of art can -- even in modern times -- help us to find a mate. It’s a bold argument to make, bolstered by examples from…

Do Animals have their own cultures too?!

One person said these words in a forum discussion that made me thinking:

For some archaeologists, it *is* culture that defines what it means to be human, therefore there is no such thing as civilisation without art/culture. That said, it is increasingly clear that some animal groups also have 'culture' (i.e., things learned/taught, that are specific to groups in a location and that are not passed on genetically but that are essential to that group for reasons of sociality or…

Strange encounters on the grounds of third culture

I always wondered what will happen when scientists and artists come together in collaborative projects. Can they understand each other's language properly? Will there be misunderstandings?

Several of my questions are being answered now because of science-art collaborative forums.

Recently on an online scientist-artist collaborative group, an interesting interaction happened. There were one or two  scientists and there were several artists. Of course I was there as a representative…

Science and art : Evolutionary values

Somebody asked this question:

Art and Science: Is there evolutionary value to the type of people who live at the intersections and try to make the two of them hold hands?

My reply:

There is even a Ph.D. course just announced in Science-art!! You can read the details here : http://kkartlab.in/group/News/forum/topics/2816864:Topic:79721

Evolutionary value?! In what sense? Yes, a new Renaissance…

Artists, venture into sci-art only after grasping the subject fully

An artist who says she deals with sci-art and is interested in highlighting ecological problems had invited us to see her work. According to her -

“Where have all of the fireflies gone?” is a commonly heard despair. The loss of fireflies in our communities is primarily based on the increased light pollution from urban structures. Therefore fireflies are a succinct metaphor for the fragility of our ecosystem. Today people mourn their loss making memories of fireflies more…

The long and winding road of a Polymath

A journey of thousands of years starts with a small step......how I got involved with all the worlds I am experimenting with now is really fascinating. I never ever imagined when I started my journey, I would become a polymath one day! Neither did the people who laid the different paths for me and made me walk on them. And I am extremely happy I am one now. The success is beyond my imagination.

I started drawing from class one as drawing is one of the main subjects in our schools along…

Can one swallow make a summer?

Can it really? Well it depends on the power of the swallow!

I recently heard somebody saying in a forum discussion, "I repeatedly find scientists who can do art, its like saying because someone can boil a kettle they can do science" .  According to this person scientists can only become "picture makers" and never "true artists" as they don't understand what true art is all about! What a dumb statement?! And what dumb assumptions!? Isn't this opinion loaded with prejudice? I am more…

On Opinions!

I have observed during forum discussions on the internet that  when others' opinions differ from those of theirs, people think, assume and argue that others are wrong and only they are right! This aspect of peoples' psychology needs a bit of analysis and clarity for the discussions to move forward without any hitches! As I am running a network where forum discussions happen every day and  also as I am participating in collaborative projects where such discussions are common, I feel this is…
