Many artists choose materials that address the subject their art is about. For example, using recycled or recovered materials to make artworks that address environmental sustainability issues. Other artists use processes to create artworks that are borrowed from the sciences such as data collection, mapping, staged archeological digs, or even chemistry to grow crystals on sculptures and more.
For this project students adapted a process, material, and/or idea to create an artwork that addresses an interest or issue in the sciences that speaks to them. Their material or process were literal or metaphorical but always inherently linked to the concept of the project.
