Science, Art, Litt, Science based Art & Science Communication
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 or funding agencies. Learning how to indulge artistic pursuits — and avoid professional obstacles such as being perceived as unfocused or undisciplined — is key to shaping a career that can sustain both art and science
I want to add here that this article is based on the views of science-art promoters and scientists who are into science-art collaborations and therefore are biased towards it. And the examples they gave for improvements in science because of collaborations can be done with pure scientific creativity. As a keen observer of the scientific world, I know what happens there. But, yes, if scientists pursue art, it cools down their burning minds because art relaxes them and a relaxed mind can do wonders in research. That way art can really help science.
And yes, designers can give scientists some new designs - useful or not - depends on how well the designers understand the concepts of science.
The outcomes really depend on how well artists are interested in science and its ways and how far they can go along with scientists in improving science.
