The reason why they never pick science based art

An artist who is dealing with science based art asked me to give reasons why the curators, art critics, gallery people and art collectors don't pick science based art.

My reply: Because they don't understand it! Pure and simple.

But I have a solution: If  no one is going to pick you, pick yourself. Why wait for others to do the job for you?
