Science, Art, Litt, Science based Art & Science Communication
Did you say you are an artist and you don't need science?
Your innocence made me smile in silence
When you are thinking about a theme
Aren't the neurons in your head firing all the same?
The biological processes occurring in your brain
Are responsible for the pictures you have drawn!
Without metallurgy and mixing metals
How can you shape the sculptures?
When on a palette you are mixing the colours
Aren't you dealing with Chemistry and chemicals?
When you are going the digital way to deal with art
Can you escape the technology part?
When you are enjoying the beauty of your art works
Aren't you in the domain of neuro-aesthetics?
When you face the problems of forgeries, frauds and conservation in art
Don't forget the importance of science's part
In solving these mysteries
You cannot ignore those lessons of histories
Now when you say you don't need science
Can you silence your conscience?
There isn't a place in the whole universe
Where you cannot escape science
Don't try to make art an exception
You will fall flat with this conception
Say yes to science-art collaboration
There is no better way to innovation.
