Thoughts on SciArt - 30 Day blogging Challenge (Day 24)


If you love both science and art, Twitter was a wonderful place to be last March.
#SciArt week, which officially ran from March 1st through the 7th, was initiated by Symbiartic bloggers Glendon Mellow, Kalliopi Monoyios and Katie McKissick, who encouraged science artists of all types of backgrounds to come together and tweet their work to the world. 

The product was a storm of scientific illustrations, paintings, sculptures and animations, that the Internet had never seen before. Their original goal was to get a total of 1600 #SciArt tweets a day but within the first 24 hours they managed to reach 4000 tweets of scientific illustrations and paintings and other artworks.


SciArt is a great way of representing science using art and photography. It also shows how beautiful science can be and encourage the love of science through art.

Although  #SciArt is overloaded with biology related artworks it needs more chemistry artworks. This could be due to the lack of popularity of the hash-tag and its intentions, even though its popularity is growing little by little every day.  


Come back tomorrow to see my favourite #SciArt submissions.

Amazing Science Images Courtesy of SciArt

[(Update: On Monday, 4,893 tweets were shared with the #SciArt hashtag; the first 3 days have totaled 11,695 tweets! Results generated from Topsy.com. Results from Symbiartic )]

As of March 1st, the Symbiartic team aspires to boost the number of images available within science communication and culture; so everyone is invited to join the hashtag #SciArt on  twitter.

So far there have been hundreds of thousand of tweets dedicated to #SciArt which has made it one of the top trending topics on twitter. 



ScientificAmerican blog imagines:


"IF, for 1 week, half the people on that list tweeted 3 pieces of art, and retweeted others at least 5 times, all in one day. That’s  1,600 tweets containing #SciArt per day; 11,200 in a week.
That will cause people to notice. Editors, journalists, researchers, educators, and maybe beyond." 

The ScientificAmerican blog has more information here to help you find out more and join the SciArt twitter storm.
