Session LanguageJJ
ScopeIn this session, we will focus on "visual science communication" and discuss about the relation between "Geoscience" and "Art". If scientists use artistic techniques to show scientific discoveries to the audience, they can easily understand difficult theories and phenomena, even if they are not familiar with science. On the other hand, if artists use scientific technique to create new artworks, people can get a lot of feeling or impression from them never before. As you can see, the fusion of "science" and "art" creates a "new communication" that connect people in various fields. In this session, specialists in various fields (geoscientist, visual science communicators, scientists of scientific illustration, curator of natural history museum, and artists that bring out new artworks with geologists) are invited as guest speakers. We are confident that this session will not only be a good opportunity for scientists to get a hint to disseminate ideas of scientists themselves, but also be a place for the general public to enjoy geoscience.
