Scipressionism: Towards A Manifesto

My thoughts on this movement are still a work in progress and the final outcome will be a manifesto. Scipressionist works could be described as SciArt. I find SciArt is an artwork inspired or linked directly in some way to developments in science. It is also safe to say that science is sometimes inspired by art. Whichever source of inspiration comes first, it is usually the case that the creation of Scientific Art is a matter of one idea following another. The link with science within works of this nature are not necessarily obvious or visible to the casual observer. It is necessary that Scipressionistic work clearly projects its link with science as well as embedding scientific aspects within the work. Ideally works presented under Scipressionism should have at once, both scientific and artistic merit and observably so. A work definitely falls under the term Scipressionism if Scientific endeavour merges with artistic expression in a way where neither mode of enquiry can be discerned from the other. This rule must stand regardless if it was not possible to create that artwork without knowledge or the existence of certain scientific principles in the first place.

The public will have as much say as the Scipressionists do in determining what constitutes a work of this nature and will decide if any of my work fits under the same heading. However, it is certain that if the artwork plays some part in a new scientific discovery it can be described as a work of Scipressionism. For work to be described a Scipressionist one should feel that art and science appear as the same process both in the process of creation and in the final outcome. Even the development of work  will have as much scientific and artistic merit attributed to it as the final outcome purports to have.
