Animation: the Collision of Art and Science

Have you ever thought how beautiful science is once you visualize it? We want to demonstrate the idea that animation & digital media can be used to communicate scientific ideas in new and powerful ways, and scientific ideas, in turn, can inspire new ways of working with digital media.

3DforScience seeks to forge new bridges between different ways of thinking, as well as with pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Through this publication, we seek to teach a new approach to the education, presentation, and dissemination of a product, technology, or service.

Art has become a medium for learning about scientific ideas or for exploring scientific ideas in new ways. Rarely is it thought that education about scientific ideas could start with artistic creation. One of the main goals of “Scientific Animation” is to expose students to different ways that scientific and artistic fields (illustrations, videos, etc) can be joined, with art sometimes serving science, and science sometimes serving art. Communicating science through animation can be a helpful tool for students or healthcare professionals to communicate with complex scientific ideas effectively. Artistic animations allow the integration of scientific research with fiction and fantasy.

Animation can be used to communicate with scientific ideas, it allows you to tell a story as a scientist in a way that a wider audience and not just scientists understand. It allows you to successfully convey technical concepts to non-specialized audiences.

The intersection between visual arts and the sciences

Scientific illustration and animation skills enable pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to foster the ability of their scientific workers to communicate ideas through images.

Illustration has been essential to the rise of science, acting as a tool for scientists to display their concepts and observations.

However, regardless of its use, scientific illustration has been crucial to teaching and learning – visualizations reach a wider audience than words and data. Images have the power to distill complex information into something easily understood, recognizes the demonstrative nature of illustration and its potential. Illustration and animation have a demonstrative nature and great potential for scientific communication, which is where art and science meet. In both disciplines, the scientist or artist looks at the world and sees something new and then communicates that new information or vision to an audience through some medium.

We could list many mediums, 3DforScience as a company specialized in scientific communication helps you to connect science and art through its multiple tools (3D animation video, scientific illustrations, interactive content, among others) and its team divided between artists and scientists. They create innovative projects for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
