    Abstract

    This dissertation reveals that artists and scientists are motivated by different reasons when choosing to collaborate in science and art based projects. Sciences main aim is to communicate scientific research to a wider public audience rather than having a sole interest in artistic endeavours, whereas artists main aim is to uncover, discover and critique the underlying values and ideas that surround science and how new scientific research and technological progress impacts and effects humans in a contemporary context. Funding and Government policy also affect the dynamics of science and art collaborations, swinging the power in sciences favour, allowing ambitious culturally, socially and artistically important projects to be funded, as long as the science is supported.
