Science, Art, Litt, Science based Art & Science Communication
It seems that the genre of generative art is both growing and becoming more sophisticated every day, and receiving a lot of attention in the art press and in related social networks. But there remains substantial confusion over the term, which I hope to do my part in helping to at least clear up some of the misconceptions and clarify just what is…Continue

Recently one artist complained to me. He said: Scientists sometimes object to the extrapolation and consequential misrepresentation of scientific concepts in the arts. As an artist making works about quantum physics, my motive is to bring concepts to a wider audience - but not by being didactic - by opening up new ways of seeing reality that will challenge beliefs about conventional reality. Initially my compulsion was to be explanatory of the concepts I was making art about but this…Continue
Somebody once asked me - what the future of art in general and science-art in particular would be like.
And my reply was : It would be like "Installations in space". I did an art work on this very theme too! The International space station was built part by part by the space scientists and techies. Likewise we can create art works in space that can be viewed from Earth. During my student days, we used to live on the outskirts of our city where we had very clear skies. During the…Continue
After interacting with artists who are into science-art, participating in various discussions with them, reading what they write and listening to what they have to say about science and science-art, I came across these misconceptions about science and scientists among artists:
According to some artists, science cannot advance on its own and therefore need art to take it forward! ( Where is art all these days when science is taking us towards progress?) There seems to be an obsession…Continue
Recently a person from the field of science asked me to tell him about the purposes of science-art interactions and whether they are being achieved. So I went on to analyse science-art goals. According to me
Science-art has five main directions:
To communicate science accurately to a lay man (1).
Art can also criticise and shine a new perspective on science. Science, after all, is a tool and how humanity uses it defines whether it improves our lives or makes it worse.…Continue
