I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.

Words cannot describe how much I love this post.

I hate that the two are talked about as oppositional things.  Science and art are bros, to the point where the debate still rages about which preceded the other.  We don’t fight, we’re not enemies, we need each other.  Ask an artist what they focus on, anatomy, light, color, depth.  Do you know what that really is?  Biology, theories of visual perception, and physics.  The number of artistic movements that were literally started because of a new scientific discovery is staggering.  Hell, to gain legitimacy, early photographers did their utmost to appear to be artists, because they knew otherwise, photography would just be viewed as an illegitimate gimmick.

I cannot tell you how much I despise this idea that science and art are at oppositional ends of the spectrum.  You can not have art without the tools made by science (stylus, paper, ink, paint, video, anything), and you cannot have science without the explanations granted by art (written word, illustrations, diagrams, charts, anatomical models, medical comics).  I literally once had someone tell me a video game could never be art because it involved science…well guess what, so did DaVinci’s works, so did the Impressionists, so did every artist ever.  Even when you break it down to pure, raw abstraction, composition is simply math.

Science is art, art is science.  Stop acting like one is pure intellect and the other pure emotion.  Its an absurd binary, and frankly, it does not really exist.

It’s amazing how well Zapdos lends himself to this parody. Not to mention the other two.

real friendship is sending them a link to something terrible so you can both be traumatized at the same time
