Art evolves, and science progresses. The intersection of the two of them has always been an interesting perspective of human creativity. In 1912 new materials, such as cement, were employed by artists; images from technology and social sciences were inspirations to artists. The new science of photography was seized early on by artists and scientists and used not only as its own art form but was used as an aid in such realms as sculpture and natural sciences. Photography helped transmit novel ideas much faster, especially when used in such publications as Scientific American.
