My Research Paper on Science-Art Interactions in Asia
I am doing research to write a white paper for the Leonardo SEAD science- art journal titled "Science-art interactions in Asia with particular reference to India ". My abstract has already been accepted and I got the go ahead to do research and write the paper.
You can read the abstract of the paper here:
As you might already know science-art is the most happening thing in North America, Europe and Australia now. But you don't see many artists experimenting with it in Asia.
Chins is the only exception in Asia where scinece-art is thriving. I want to hear from artists here to know the reasons.
I have done a lot of research on the subject but still want to hear from all of you as people working on the ground can give me first hand information.
I request all my Chinese artist and art curator friends to let me know their experiences in the field of art, provide information on art market dynamics and mechanisms in their regions.
Also please let me know your opinions on why science as a subject is not being taken up by the artists as a theme to do art works in your region. I want to know what your roadblocks, reservations and difficulties are in dealing with science art.
This paper will help improve the situation with regard to science-art as big players in the science-art arena in the world are interested to know what the causes are for this dismal performance of science based art in Asia to take steps to rectify the situation.
I request all my Asian artist friends to come forward and express their opinions freely.
If possible please add your comments on the abstract page of the Leonardo sead network too stating why it is important to publish such papers.
If members from other parts of the world want to comment, they are welcome to do so with their observations on the situation here.
