Science-Art Interactions In Asia With Particular Reference To India
Contributed by Morgan Fritz on 25 Mar 2014
"Life itself is a beautiful interaction between art and science. You cannot escape this reality no matter what you say or do!" While North America, Europe and Australia are basking in the glory of new wave science-art collaborations and reaping all the benefits that these interactions are bringing, there are some parts of the world that are relatively untouched by these happenings! Asia, to which the Indian subcontinent belongs, remains almost immune to the developments happening around the world in this arena. With the exception of China, we find very few science-art projects in the region. In a coordinated study for this paper, an attempt has been made to (a) find the extent of science art interplays in Asia, (b) seek reasons for the little interest on science based art here and (c) explore ways to correct the situation.
