[Yasmin_discussions] R: artist as inventors

Dear yasminers

a wee contribution.

> But the collaboration between art and science remains quite difficult.

it is so, but still not fully impossible.
from my experience (I'm often switching from the artistic to the scientific
environments) I understood that there are few cognitive walls that,
apparently, divide the two.
and that's quite interesting!
for example, at the moment, I'm reading Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks which
is, somehow, exemplar. He talks about music for hundreds pages without
giving at anytime the appropriate feeling of warmth the music phenomenon,
itself, would require.
I've got the feeling that such things as emotions, empathy, aesthetics, and
so on, are poorly represented (or pedagogically required and developed?) in
a big part of the scientific community, which is quite natural if you think
that many of the scientific observation (in psychology as for example), need
to watch at the world from the "outside".
