Science Art exists on a continuum. At one end of the spectrum is scientific illustration. This is art in the service of science used to teach concepts or visualize big ideas. At the other end is art inspired by science: plenty of art flash but short on science....
This year, the Chicago Science Festival, hosted by the Illinois Science Council, will feature an event called Science as Art. We invite you to submit artistic and scientific images from your work for consideration. Images ranging from the tiniest nanoparticles and neurons to the largest galactic images, including all types of microscopy and other scientific photography, are welcome. Submissions will be accepted from now until April 22, 2018.
Science as Art will take place on May 8, 2018 at STUDIO Xfinity, 901 W. Weed Street in Chicago from 5:30-8:30 pm.
All submissions must be emailed to email@example.com with “ScienceAsArt_
Only digital submissions will be considered. All images must have a title, author(s), affiliated institution(s), and 2-3 sentence description in layterms.
We look forward to seeing your SciArt!
