Science, Art, Litt, Science based Art & Science Communication
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?
I have read this quote somewhere and I like it: If you are waiting to be anointed, waiting to be branded, waiting to for someone with supposed authority to declare you famous, worthy, genius, or what have you, you will fail.
So go and search for the success yourself. Don't expect others to give it to you. 99 times out of 100, they won't. Why would they? It is your life and your struggle. What you do about it is your business. Why would others be interested in it unless they have something to gain from it?
If there is no market for science based art, create one! Haven't you heard about self promotion?
I promoted myself and now people are promoting me for their own benefit! That is the trick!
But you should also understand that to make people understand your work there should be clarity in your work. There should be a purpose for creating science related art. If you have one people too will support it. If you do something purposeless and with ambiguity, how can you promote your work?
