Art and science and the interactive forces that often pull them together and at times ultimately separate them is the central theme of Useful Symbiosis: Science, Technology, Art & Art Education. While aiming to ignite a productive debate on the overlapping tendencies of arts and the exact natural sciences, the book also seeks to address the educational dimension of these intersections. In their quest to define the relationships between visual arts and sciences and their technical applications, the authors of the book, among whom are also art historians, artists, scientists and pedagogues, believed it beneficial to first analyse the concept of the scientific approach without any preconceptions, and to demonstrate its advantages and limitations. Adopting the same approach to the issue of arts, the authors succeeded in offering extended understanding of the two realms of human culture. Numerous examples of ‘useful symbioses’ that follow the theoretical part of the book help further support their claim that science sometimes ‘does art’, and art can sometimes ‘do science’, and sometimes the borders between art and science disappear altogether.
