" Artists and scientists share a curiosity for the unknown, an appreciation for the beauty of the worlds they explore and an interest in creating something new. Both science and art are human attempts to understand and describe the world around us. One dominated by technical introverts, the other by expressive eccentrics. The subjects and methods have different traditions, and the intended audiences are different, but in fact that the motivations and goals are fundamentally the same. Science simply means finding out about stuff, but in that process science is the greatest driver of culture. We share because we are social creatures."
