The relationship between art and science – a “brainstorming”

This mind map was based on interviews with scientists. Among other things, we asked about the drive, to work scientifically or to decide on a way of life as a scientist. We compared their answers with the answers we gave ourselves as artists. We then filtered essential nouns and core phrases out of the interview and grouped them together. The task was to produce as many unique references as possible. We worked on it until only a few elements without reference remained in the room. There were terms left that could not be clearly assigned or even, as in the case of aesthetics, formed their own cloud of related terms. We can identify these terms as an intersection between the drive of artistic and scientific work.
