Art is Science

Art is a lens through which the artist sees a world. The process of creating art is an experiment by which the artist constructs a viewing apparatus for other people to view a portion of a world visible to the artist.  Just as there is a scientific method, there is (or should be) an artistic method.

  1. Define a question
  2. Gather information and resources (observe)
  3. Form an explanatory hypothesis
  4. Test the hypothesis by creating a work of art and collecting data in a reproducible manner (Create and show)
  5. Analyze the data (What did people see through your art?)
  6. Interpret the data and draw conclusions that serve as a starting point for new hypotheses (Did you properly convey your vision?)
  7. Publish results (“My audience “gets” me!”)
  8. Create.
