Science, Art, Litt, Science based Art & Science Communication
A few days back, I sent a message to all the members of Sci-Art Lab asking them to participate in a research study titled "How scientists look at art" and help the scientists. I , myself, was a participant scientist in the study.
Now the results of the research project carried out by Bayer in conjunction with the University of Reading are out. You can see the full details here:

My work and words have been mentioned in two blogs of Huffington Post journal:
There are many publications related to science help developments in art, fine art respectively.
I limit my intervention in the Sci-Art, from my experiments.
To determine the position they occupy my studies in context contemporary developments
in fine art I present some issues that I thought were it might highlight my position.
Classification of attempt:
-A class of fine art, dominating, is the compositions made by…Continue

A British artist got an inspiration that would make your skin crawl. Yes, have you ever thought of being wrapped-up in cloths made of deadly Bacteria? Before running away listen to this story of the artist who combines terrifying bugs into textiles.
She stitches bacteria and antibiotics into cloths to make patterns and reveal the stories behind microbes. Who is she? Well, a bio-artist, who else, called Anna Dumitriu.
Her biological 'inks' range from methicillin and vancomycin -…Continue
Through my profession builder and designer optical optics
I inset to apply my knowledge about fine art geometric sequences of visual sense.
So I participated in discussions and wrote blogs. presenting examples of compositions, which
could be considered that it belongs to a domain that I did called
Bioptical Art (Dioptical-bioptical Art)
This title has allowed me the opportunity may appeal to Google to see to what extent

I have seen at least 25 artists complaining that scientists never accept that their work could help science or that it was highly significant!
I myself wrote a few highly critical articles on the work of artists (1,2,3,4). Why do I do this?
Am I against art and these artists? Do scientists think that art is inferior to science? Definitely not! I respect art as much as I respect science.
If I think art is inferior to science why would I enter the field in the first place?…Continue
I came across an artist's work recently . This artist is trying to help forensic science! You can see her work here: http://deweyhagborg.com/
Here you can read an interview based on her work here:…Continue
Applying the elementary dioptical-bioptial effect in the interpretation of fine art compositions
I continue to give examples of the use of certain types of stimuli in fine art compositions in order
diversification of means of visual communication.
I want to…Continue

An art lecturer in the US has sent me a message recently. The message said: Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa, I am designing a university art show: "Art Inspired by Science", to encourage students, professors and researchers to share their work through the lens of art. I am in the process of writing the criteria in order to have a wide net and still keep a high bar for real art. If you have any suggestions for criteria from your project, I would appreciate your insights.
As a reply to her…Continue
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
These days Artists want to 'advance' science with art. I have seen several statements in this regard from artists and their work proposals and sometimes even results too. Now judge for yourself what route they are taking and how much they are able to succeed.
I want to give here one story.
An artist says:
"What I do, is in the meeting and colaboration with the scientist, lay down a painting on the table and ask questions to the scientist about his research project. In the…

An article in this weeks Nature deals with emerging careers in Science art.
Although the article doesn't deal with many jobs and has several suggestions and says, one has to still identify the jobs as there is scope, it is a good article.
The article says: Collaborations offer career benefits including improved productivity as a result of a new perspective or a more creative outlook; bolstered communication and outreach skills; and contacts among artists, like-minded scientists…Continue
