“Both artists and researchers are driven by curiosity about the world around them,” says Bergstad. “They observe and then communicate their observations. Both can learn from each other.”
The MAR-ECO project demonstrates a number of dynamic relationships between art and science including jazz music, film, photography, paintings and sculpture.
The presentation addressed questions such as: How can Art help to communicate Science? Can it help Science reach new target groups? Are the two areas mutually inspiring? Is Art the language of the brain? Can Science be Art?
