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 am an artist and I can 100% confirm to this. As artistic as my thoughts get, they are also very scientific as well. They both explore the worlds and look closely to things and find meanings and patterns in them, whether they are mathematical are visual. I often refer to my mind as a prism. It gathers up these unseen and invisible spectrum of information, processes it, and then releases a colorful, visible spectrum for the world to see. That’s how I translate scientific information into art. Similarly, I can do the same vice versa. Art and Science are more similar than you think.
