[Yasmin_discussions] why scientists invest time in art science practices


from molecular biologist francois joseph lapointe


Hello everybody,

I think it would be worth trying to determine if (and how) we make
art differently as scientists compared to artists involved in artsci
projects, but without any formal training in science. I believe that
it's not symmetrical. I think that the research-creation methodologies
that we are using are somewhat different. For instance, I am using
hypothesis-driven and experimental practices to make art.
