Say it isn’t so
Naturwissenschaften im Visier der Kunst
The sciences have always been a subject and source of inspiration for artists, influencing the artistic language of form, providing the know-how for the execution of certain works of art, being declared art, synthesized with art, and criticized by art. Since the end of the last millennium, a striking number of artists have been inflamed by a renewed interest in the natural sciences. They botanize plants, typify cow stains, build insect observation stations. They use scientific jargon, scientific forms of illustration, or create idiosyncratic models.
