DNA of Creativity: Fusing the Energies of San Diego Arts and Sciences, the San Diego Visual Arts Network is gathering information and making connections between the art and science worlds with a goal of fusing the energies of both communities to produce a series of projects. These projects will enhance the viewing public’s perception of creativity and its role in our lives. This blog will endeavor to add links of interest and provide a way for free discussions on this subject.

There is a magazine dedicated to the combination of art and science. SciArt
Here is the statement by the editor:Julia Buntaine
Art and science have long shared a common
ground; the ground of boundless inquiry about the nature of our
existence. It has only been for the past few decades, however, that
artists have turned their eye to the sciences as their sole source of
artistic information, inspiration, and conceptualization. SciArt, or
science-based art, is a quickly growing movement in the art world, with
an increasing number of artists who hold doctorate degrees in the
sciences, who are funded by the National Science Foundation, and who
hold artistic residencies in scientific institutions such as CERN. With
science-based art having a strong presence in the UK and Berlin
contemporary art scenes, I began to wonder: why it is that the SciArt
community in the United States is barely established? Although SciArt is
certainly happening in America, it remains scattered. I want to fix
this. As a science-based artist myself, I see community as essential
to our success because the methods, challenges, materials and goals of
science-based art are new and unique, lying in uncharted art
historical territory. It is through this online publication, featuring
science-based art events, spaces, artists and conversations that I
want to bolster science-art in America.
