Differences between science-art (science illustration), science based art and technology assisted art
Science based art is different from technology assisted art. In technology assisted art tech is used in creating any form of art and with any theme. Science has nothing to do with this art except for assisting in creating it.
Science-art is used to communicate science through art. Even an illiterate person can understand science when shown in a picture form. That is science illustration.These days science illustration is being dubbed as science-art, ( also given names such as 'Art of science' - when science specimens and data are shown in an artistic way, 'Art in science' - when the aesthetics part of science is shown by scientists). It is art okay 'the art part' of it lies in how well a person can copy from a specimen. To show people around details of the object of science. It can also explain details for a layman to understand science in a better way. Also data can be presented in a picture form to make it clear. This is not real art but an 'illustrative art'.
Science based art is the real art which shows science, scientific themes and theories in a new light. It also deals with the culture of science ( yes, science has its own culture too!).
It makes people understand the relevance of science to their very existence!
