It’s so sad to me that we have to Blend Science and Art. It’s not sad that we have to blend it, but that it was “de-blended” in the first place. I mean, you can’t really blame anyone for it – although we could point to a few things. At one point, the science became more important than the art. Just take a look at the hierarchy that we’ve created in formal education. As if Science is better – and Art is too artsy – as if it’s a bad thing.
So claim your identity as a scientist or artist. They’re both cool, but that’s the key I guess – be both.
