I was talking to an artist yesterday who wanted to incorporate some microscopic images into a new pork she is preparing. This got me thinking about the similarities between art and science. Here's a few.
Both are profoundly creative endeavors.
“The overriding message of all art... is ‘Pay attention.’” - Harlan Ellison. You could say the same thing about science: the message is, “Pay attention!”
Both are hand crafted, not mass produced. At least, in their original form.
Both, at their best, transform the way you see your world.
