Ionic Magazine aims at bridging the gap between science and art, offering a unique perspective on scientific discoveries. The two subject matters are often considered to be poles apart. Science is about truth, about following rules and laws that help answer fundamental rational questions, while art invokes emotional connections through expression, impressions, concepts and creations. Yet both create a sense of mystery, both are matched when it comes to skill, creativity and impact. The beauty and inspiration involved in scientific breakthroughs can parallel the genius involved in creating art. For this reason, I’ve created Ionic Magazine to establish a source of imagery for modern day scientific breakthroughs.
In each issue, Ionic Magazine will publish recent scientific developments within many areas of science. These will be current in the literature, and provide a platform for science writers, whether established in their careers, just beginning or perhaps experimenting their capabilities at science communication, to rant and rave about exciting developments within their particular expertise or interests. Beside each article will lay an artist’s representation of that very story. No graph, no figure, no formulae, instead a piece of art constructed from personal interpretation and not scientific representation. They will leave the reader asking more than can be answered.
The ultimate goal: a stunning and stimulating collaboration of two traditionally contrasting worlds.
