Sunil Vilas exclusive interview’s Dr Krishna Kumari Challa – Indian Scientist, writer, poet & artist

GICAS Exclusive Intervws Krisna

sunilvilas1Here to cover the question of creative dualism, I am proud to welcome our next guest to our VIP Creative Lounge moving across to the continent of Asia and to India,  Scientist, Writer Poet  and Artist  Dr. Krishna  Kumari ChallaKrishna

She has had numerous solo and group exhibitions, in India from 2008, “Cosmic Show of Science” group shows in around India in 2009; a group show in Copenhagen (Denmark) in 2010; Izmir Biennial in May 2011 (Turkey); Italy, 2011.  Exhibited at the first International science-art conference in Moscow 2012.

ART AND SCIENCE UNITED BY ONE IMPULSE AND ONE LOGIC

 In introducing our next guest we remind ourselves of the Great maestro Leonardo DA VINCI who also had his interest in two fields—the artistic and the scientific which developed and shaped his future work, building towards a kind of creative dualism that sparked his inventiveness in both fields. One of his great contributions was the start of Scientific Revolution. He revolutionized the way that scientists have researched ever since. The method has been used to study the world around us by scientists for years to come and much of his work in many fields and his scientific method fuelled scientists for years to come.

 “Principles for the Development of a Complete Mind: Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses- especially learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.”

Leonardo da Vinci

ScienceartAnd to bring us to modern time we can also relate to contemporary artist of today – British, Turner Prize winning artist Keith Tyson, whose art is driven by science and discovery

“Artists, unlike scientists, are not attempting to model the world. They are trying to engage the viewer with the wonder of it. If you attempt to marry and equate art with science, then you fail. If you allow what is not similar about art and science, and their different methods and processes to co-exist and thrive, then a real art/science collaboration and aesthetic will emerge. But at the end of the day, both art and science are united by one logic and one impulse – both are attempts to understand what it is to be human and the world around us.”

Welcome, Krishna!  Thank you for joining us in our VIP Creative Lounge for our exclusive interview.

 

Q1 – Sunil –  Krishna I am sure everyone here is intrigued to know how you choose your path to a career in Science as well as to use your talents in Art.., please do enlighten us a little about your background?

Krishna . Sunilji, I am from a country that has been described as the cradle of civilization – India. The country promotes art, respects science and enhances one’s literary capabilities.

I did my M.Sc. in Life Sciences and Ph.D. in Microbiology. My area of research is toxins produced by microorganisms in food and how to control them and protect food from these microbes and toxins. I published several research papers in science and a white appear on science based art. I am a self-taught artist who specializes in Art from Science. I am also a writer, a poet, a designer, a social activist, a network creator and an international science-art consultant and reviewer. I explore the relationship between Art, Literature and Science on my network, Art Lab. I wrote more than 500 hundred articles on various subjects and at present writing books on the subject of science-art literature interactions and how to communicate science through art and literature.

Sunil – Krishna we can see how Science had a greater influence in your career and how the flexibilities of being able to switch to arts allowed you to practice both careers in parallel. We over here in the West should use these examples and perhaps look to slowly bring about changes to our education system where our future generation could be encourage to develop both the logical and the creative mind. During our time we had a rigid and more structured system where we had to make a career choice to either go in the field of the Sciences or the Art. Perhaps these changes are already happening in countries that are looking for more advancement in their education system to adapt a friendly and more flexible approach to Science as well as Art.

as%2020_big

Were there other influences in your life, that helped you to progress into the Science field, from anyone in the family?

Krishna – Sunilji, Most of the members of my family are in the commerce field and I am the only person that entered the science arena. My parents encouraged me a lot and gave me full freedom to do whatever I wanted to do. Science had me in its grip from the beginning although I am equally interested in art and literature. All the three fields have made me the person I am now – a whole human being – a polymath! Polymaths always fascinated me. To push the limits of the boundaries of the mind to reach the maximum levels of working is a challenge and I accepted it with pleasure.

Sunil – Krishna what a fascinating development to your life story both playing major part in your Life making you what you are today. Thank you for sharing with us.

Q2. Sunil – I would like to ask my next questions concentrating on your artistic development. What’s the first thing you can remember completing as art work?

as11_big

Krishna  – Water colour landscapes painted during my childhood. I did quite a few of them! My real ‘science based art’ was born when I created my first work titled “Sacred Life”. I used religious teachings and art for the cause of conservation. Completed in 2006, that, I feel, is my first real art work.

as38_big

Sunil – How very interesting that landscape painting became a natural choice for you to develop your artistic talent. We relate to our surrounding as an attachment for our growth and learning process therefore appropriate for you to lean towards your environment for inspiration.

as5_big

Q3.    Sunil – This therefore leads me to ask my next question, when did you first realize you were an artist?

Krishna – Sunilji, when I was in school, my teachers appreciated my drawings. I was given full marks all through my academic career for all my science- illustrations. And I realized I can write poems too when my English teacher gave me nine marks out of ten for my rhythmic language and wrote ‘excellent’ on my English literature exam answer sheets as the tenth one ( the rules didn’t allow her to give me ten out of ten!)

 Sunil – How encouraging and very fortunate that you developed your trust in your instincts the major factors that help you nurture you’re true creative talents.

oi10

Q4.    Sunil – Krishna, How would you describe your art to someone who has never seen your work?

Krishna. – A beautiful interaction between art and science. Proof of aesthetics of science! An awesome communication of complexity through simplicity. (This is how other people described my work!)

Sunil – Krishna I would agree with that and add that your paintings are a representation of innocences, creativity working from basic forms to more deeper spiritual enlightenment covering the path of the journey on different levels.

kk8_big

Q5.    Sunil – Krishna, you recently become member of GICAS as you aware of what we have achieved in a short period a Global Organisation.  How could we assist you or help to  get your message out there?

Krishna  – Sunilji, It is nice to know about the work GICAS is doing in promoting art at the global level. Science and art can work with each other for the benefit of the whole mankind. Please, take this Renaissance message to the people around the world. Promote science based art by mentioning it wherever and whenever possible. Make people accept it as a form of art. Organizers of Art and science shows, fairs, Biennials should encourage sci-artists by making science based art a part of main-stream art. People complain that sci-art is being neglected completely by the funding agencies. This attitude should change. And a change can be brought only when people accept it as a form of art!

Sunil, Krishna, I am sure our interview today will go a long way to achieve your wish as our interview today has gone out to all members and guests who all appreciate our strong message and we could see openings for greater possibilities for members in management and decision making role to do what is right for the betterment of Mankind. From our successful example we can begin to mirror prospects around the globe.

oi31_big

Q6.   Sunil – Would you like to share examples of some of your major projects?

Krishna – Sunilji, I am trying to communicate complex science through art and literature. At the moment I am more into research and publishing papers involving science-art and scientists’ dealings with art apart from creating science based art and literature (in the form of stories, poems and articles) and running a network based on the theme which doubles as a journal on the subject. If time permits, I will try to do a few projects based on the theme in the future.

DanceoftheFuture

Sunil – Krishna I can see you are doing  wonderful work and wish you continued success all round as I believe the role you playing will become an important pivoting factor for the future progress and destiny for humanity to look toward finding solutions to address the problems of how to preserve our only planet for our future generation.

oi1

Q7.   Sunil – Describe yourself in 3 words; one has to be a colour?

Krishna.- A complete person (of science, art and literature!)

Universal, Humane, Black (Krishna means black in Sanskrit), The colour is very mysterious and has great significance. The colour absorbs all the other colours yet very stable. It overwhelms all other colours! Black would harmonize better with the other colours. When you put black on top of another colour, the colour below disappears! You can correct the mistakes in a painting by using black. Black has this awesome presence! When black colour is placed along side a lighter colour, the contrast between the colours attracts the eye more. When black is added, you get depth to any painting or an art work!

When surrounded by black colour, things pop out in a work of art. Its presence brings out the best in other colours! Black is one of the most important colours of the art world! (like all the colours but the significance of black is really striking!)

Renoir said black is the “queen of all colours” because it has the power to draw the most attention to itself in a painting. It can create bold contrast and accents in the hands of a master painter. Black is a Master’s color, a color that Rembrandt, Manet, Frans Hals, Renoir and a few others could use in an extraordinary manner.

as14_big

Sunil – Krishna thank you for your self analysis. I would further reinforce your comments that your goals for Sciences and Arts will become the future direction for the greater benefit of the whole Universe.

Q8.    Sunil – Tell us your perfect scenario for working in art?

Krishna  – Science Lab! When a person of science enters the fields of art, naturally science becomes her ‘muse’!

Sunil – Krishna Yes I could visualize the prospects for the environment around the Science Labs with the backdrop to showcase art for both to co-exists and bring harmony to the surrounding spaces.

Q9.    Sunil – Do you have any advice for artists just starting out?

Krishna   -. Just be who you are!

Sunil quiet short and to the point thank you for your advice..,

oi12_big

Q10.    Sunil –   It been an exciting journey to follow your career in Science and Art from the early beginning and now with this exciting interview we have to come to the end therefore my final question, what are you working on just now? Or give us your future plans that you are working on? And finally if I could request you recite one of your poem to complete our interview.

Krishna- Sunilji, Writing books, Lots of them. On science, science-art, poetry and general topics, stories. I am a fashion and jewellery designer too. I have designed more than 200 Indian dresses till now! Right now I am working on some more designs.

Creating more art works to communicate science.

And combining, Science, Art and Literature …

Follow Science only in the way a Scientist’s mind would allow

Create art with an artist’s heart

Balance art and science to touch everybody’s senses

Culturize science like the specialists advise

 With

Music of Science that can create magic

A touch of art only electro-magnetism can match

Art and science that can never part

Whose appeal has a universal base

Then

Wondering world can’t stop pondering

Science in art or is this art in science

Stamp of a polymath or a hard work’s pomp?

Making people say, oh, what a feeling!

–        Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa

Sunil –  Thank you Krishna it now leave me to do the final honours to invite GICAS members and guests participation by asking for questions. Therefore to conclude our interview if I could request for two individual questions that you would like to ask Krishna.

 Dear Dr.Krishna, I have three questions.
‘Probably science has been trained and domesticated me- both in physical and artistic life. I usually think art and science are strongly associated and such relationship will help man to observe things in the universe and on our planet earth sensibly and compassionately. Is my observations are meaningful?’

‘Why nature, avidly modified humans into more intelligent beings compared to other species? And why humans fervently acquire automobiles rather than art works, and arms rather than flowers?’   Kind regards!

Welcome Pushkin to our VIP creative lounge, thank for asking three very interesting questions..,

Thanks for the comments, Mr. Pushkin.  Yes, when you have both art and science in a single mind, your outlook will definitely be different. I find this really interesting.  Artist’s depend mostly on “their thoughts, ideas, beliefs and personal views” for their work whereas scientists’ base their work on natural laws and facts and how to fit their informed ideas into these laws to creatively invent or discover something. The imagination of a scientist is based on reality. A scientist has to get his imagination right to succeed  where as the artist need not do it right to move forward. In fact, the inadequacies of artists’ imagination are what moves the art world forward! I will give an example here. When artists, writers and poets look at the moon they see it as a silver ball in the sky and describe it or paint it in this manner. I even read some stories where the crescent moon was described as a jewel in the hair of a God! This thinking reflects in their creativity ( metaphor and fiction). Now scientists think in terms of a rocky, dusty satellite that moves in space around the earth trapped in its gravity field when they think about the moon and they use their creativity to take the help of the gravity of the moon to accelerate space ships or change their course to send them to other planets to save fuel and time – the mechanism is called “gravity assist ”  ( fact). In that way artistic creativity differs from scientific creativity.  Artistic creativity makes me relax and breathe easy while my mind gets over burdened with scientific creativity. Changing the gear then will really be helpful.  Both science and art are compassionate when taken in the right perspective. But somehow as scientists we were told and trained to put emotions at bay as soon as we enter our work places as they interfere with critical thinking. It is difficult for scientists to come out of this mold.  In art there are no such restrictions and therefore artists seem more humane and emotional.  However, anyone who knows how a nervous system works during pain processing can do no physical harm to any living being. And anyone who knows how the brain really works at the emotional level will never try to harass another living being. Any person who has seen how the scientific rules are followed universally in a given set of conditions, and understood its beauty can never think in local terms and can never come under the influence of artificially created races, castes, groups, communities or citizenships. He sees all the living beings as his own images – following universal rules of life and as citizens of this universe. I learned all about human existence, morality, humane nature, universal brotherhood, secularism, tolerance, inner strength and everything a human being should be from science! It gave me answers to several of my questions – including the most testing ones like  – how to be calm in the most trying circumstances, how to have peace of mind when everything around you is falling apart. In that way both art and science are both humane and meaningful.

I have already answered your second Q in one of my art works titled ” Choice is yours”. Some people complain that science also brings with it a few bad things like commercial GM crops, nuclear bombs etc. along with the good it does to the mankind. But according to the scientific community – science is like a knife. A knife can be used to cut throats and spill blood. It can also be used for good purposes like cutting fruits and vegetables. It depends on the person who uses it. Likewise science can also be used for the benefit of living beings as well as for their destruction. Which way it goes is in the hands of the person who uses it. The choice is definitely yours. Science doesn’t ask people to use guns.  The ultimate truth is that no nation has gone to war with another about whose laboratories or technologies are better. Human history is instead replete with wars over religion or the egos of kings. It is true that science has provided the tools for war and given a false or a short term sense of confidence to nations, but it has never, ever suggested war. So associating war with science is like associating horses with war – science has provided the wherewithal for more violent wars but never, ever demanded a war or subjugation of other people. That has been done  by kings  And leaders claiming to be agents of god generally driven by greed or a sense of personal glory. Again if you ask why this ego and personal glory is present – I would say when the chemicals ( of aggression and reward like testosterone and dopamine ) that control the emotions of human beings becomes uncontrollable, their minds go heywire. There is a difference between animals and human beings.  I created an art work based on the theme too titled “MIND OVER MATTER” It says:  A mentally weak person says: “You can’t escape your Biology” or “It is impossible to overcome your Biology”. Right? Wrong!
Yes, your genes control the way you behave & live – through biochemical reactions. Your nerves & pleasure points in the body & brain affect your behaviour too.
Harmones try to get involved in every thing you do. With all these strings attached to your life & affecting every move you make, how can you escape your Biology?
But, you can! The same life came with a mind & a thought process too. With a little bit of thinking – you can determine what is wrong & what is right, what is bad & what is good, what is pain & what is pleasure in the end. By tightly controlling this process & in turn the behaviour one can overcome one’s Biology. It is not easy & requires tremendous training of the mind. But if a person can do it, he can become a superhuman.

And “Why nature, avidly modified humans into more intelligent beings compared to other species?” I think nature doesn’t show any discrimination between living beings. One chemical reaction leads to another evolving a more complex system. A single dust grain becomes a complex structure of snow flake. Watch here how a snow flake ‘evolves’ here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYrF3sFBY20 Likewise a single cell organism evolved into several other forms of life. This evolution process lead to the most complex human beings. Such a complex system needs a sophisticated brain to survive. So the brain too evolved to deal with the complexity of human survival process and ‘intelligence’ is the result of such evolution. Unless we can analyse the surroundings we live in properly and act according to the demands of our surroundings we cannot survive. This thought process of how to survive successfully in the world we live in lead to intelligence. As we think more and more and put our capabilities to more tests, our intelligence evolves more and more by taking new routes.  And the ‘intelligence’ of any living being depends on its needs to survive in the environment it lives in.

Good morning Krishna, thank you for your more detailed responses to Pushkin’ s questions .., very enlightening to understand from both perspectives  the sciences as well as the art..,  Perhaps we could continue with more questions from our GICAS family and guests as we are LIVE on GOOGLE, Facebook, our website and here in LinkedIn..,

Dear Krishna, thank you so much for your meaningful and beautiful explanations on my questions.  As a multi-talented person, your evaluation on life, art and science is fabulously proficient and novel. But about ‘emotion’, artists too are applicable to limitations because emotion is behaviour and its direct exposition possibly contributing different results on art (and precarious results in real life too). For example, Paul Rubens’s ‘The rape of the daughters of Leucippus’ and Picasso’s Guernica.  Both painting emanates extreme anguish and anxiety but Guernica is so imperturbable than ‘The rape of the daughters of Leucippus’.
My theory on life and human being: ‘The universe deliberately created life in order to feel its own existence and nature purposely adopted and brilliantly designed human beings as an enormous ‘consumer’ to stabilize its bio symmetry. The nature constructed and adjusted human brain and body inaudibly and efficiently for creating and constructing technologies powered by fossil fuels- its basic elements or possessions littered beneath for millions of years in unconventional forms. Nature encourages a human more to buy an automobile than a painting because automobile consumes more fossil fuels than art. You cannot keep aside a single object untouched by fossil fuels in the contemporary life.’ (You can consider this as fictitious, but think about it. Kind regards!)

Thanks, Sunilji and Mr.Pushkin. Science is still trying to understand why life came into existence and evolved in the way it is doing. “Consume” is a relative word. According to the laws of  conservation of energy:    Energy can neither be created nor destroyed.     All forms of energy exhibit mass & all mass is a form of energy.     Energy remains constant.    Energy can be converted from one form     to another i.e., if it disappears in one form     it reappears in another form An atom that is a part of you now can become a part of a plant or a tree in  your garden or your pet dog or a hill- while you are living or after your death. If it disappears from  here, it reappears somewhere else. Everything came from cosmic energy & mass & return to it in  the end. This universe runs on mass & energy cycles- where life &death are relative terms & words  like I & mine become meaningless. Here nothing-not even your body- is yours! ( my art work “Universal Philosophy”) So when you consume a plant, the atoms and molecules or energy becomes yours. And when a tiger consumes you again you become a part of the tiger. When the tiger dies, all its energy and mass again return to nature and is consumed by other organisms of nature. So mass and energy are constant  and don’t go anywhere – they just undergo various cycles. But we are consuming or taking more than we should from nature and right now it is going out of balance. That is what scientists are worried and warning about. Fossil fuels ( again came from plants and other living organisms that existed on our planet millions of years ago)  and we are consuming them more fast than nature can make them! And utilizing them is polluting the planet and One day they would just disappear from the planet. Then? What would you do? Again science has to provide answers! It already is doing just that!

Good morning Krishna thank you for your reply, to Pushkin’s theoretical question,  ..,
Pushkin let’s pick up on interesting point you rise to explore possibilities as a group to look at the works more closely by the two master’s Paul Rubens and Pablo Picasso drawing parallel of understanding the psychic nature of their emotions, could have played to effect the final results, as both the painters completed powerful works.

Peter_Paul_Rubens_RUP001Paul Rubens’s work, ‘The rape of the daughters of Leucippus’- 1618 a classical five figure painting an ancient mythical story in Baroque Era   and Pablo Picasso’s Guernica -1937, A black & white symbolic painting depicting war & art, recording the truth behind the bombing of Guernica, and how technology plays a destructive role to mankind as whole.

40-12-17/35
Pushkin I would like to introduce a third painting by Paul Rubens’s “The Consequence of War 1638-1639 completed three hundred years earlier, as a direct reference and comparisons between the two artists to continuing our discussion on science and art.

    Like I have said before on this very thread, according to scientists, science and technology have been misrepresented as things that play a destructive role to mankind as a whole. Quote-” Choice is yours” my work sums this up. Some people complain that science also brings with it a few bad things like commercial GM crops, nuclear bombs etc. along with the good it does to the mankind. But according to the scientific community – science is like a knife. A knife can be used to cut throats and spill blood. It can also be used for good purposes like cutting fruits and vegetables. It depends on the person who uses it. Likewise science can also be used for the benefit of living beings as well as for their destruction. Which way it goes is in the hands of the person who uses it. The choice is definitely yours.- Unquote. Scientists toil day and night to bring benefits to mankind. It is the people who cannot understand what it is all about and fueled by greed, use the technology for destruction.  Science and technology are not at fault, the idea of using them for destruction is!

Good morning to all our members around the Globe, hope all is well with you all and enjoying a weekends break!!!
Thank you Krishna for your reconfirmation, I enjoyed Pushkin’s analogy therefore wanted to introduce another perspective for the benefit of our art audiences seeking further clarification as I believe everyday we awake to explore possibilities of improving our creative minds and the environment that we live in.., question is how to maintain a happy balance?
If we could continue with our conversation on Science and Art, if other members around the globe including guests would ask a question to Krishna.

‘Manic Depression and Creativity’ –an interestingly discussed topic by prominent scientists recently and some of the famous artists were introduced during the discussion were Van Gogh, Rothko etc.
It will be interested if ‘Emotion in Artwork’ will be a subject.  To me, an artist can’t materialise a creative desire if an emotional influence cannot be taken place. The emotional influence exists as different perspectives as peculiar, composed and mixed.  For example ‘Tree of fluids (Body of a lady)’ (Jean Dubuffet) for peculiar, ‘Composition with Red, Yellow and Blue’ (Piet Mondrian) for composed, and ‘Autumn Rhythm’ (Jackson Pollock) for mixed (I strongly believes Pollock’s ‘emotion’ has been intertwined with his own ‘physical emotiveness’ too.) ‘Emotions in art’ is a significant subject and we can start a new Discussion on the ICAS’s profile later.

Pushkin thank you for your suggestions..,  Yes!!! it would be a lovely idea to cover a whole topic on emotional in Art in our creative lounge and perhaps have recommendation for the monthly theme committee to include the ideas for May, June and or July for artists to consider submitting work relevant to the topic of discussion.
Thank you once again Krishna for your reply to Pushkins last comment, giving references and case studies that makes excellent reading..,

 A significant discussion. When I suggested for participating, few of my artist friends said science and art subsists on two different shores with dissimilar identities. May be such perception on science and art is personal but untimely because, except some few communities who live, or have lived, either choice or by circumstance, without significant contact with globalised cavitation located in densely forested areas in South America, New Guinea and India, the all other existing civilization now living under a single roof of ‘science’, assisted by safety pin to email and antibiotic to acrylic paints and candies to ballistic missiles! A factual fact!

How true! One artist once said, ‘we don’t need science in the art world’ which made me smile. Because I told him, ‘the moment you try to mix chemicals on a palette, you are dealing with chemistry. The moment you start appreciating a work of art, you are dealing with neuro-aesthetics.  Now say you don’t need science in art!’ He was silent since then. You cannot escape science in any field now! This is a fact.

As accentuated science’s prominence and contributions, artists’ stands and concerns too should be addressed. Carl Sagan once said that science is a two edged sword and both representing innovations and destructions. For example, Between 50 to 70 million people were killed by wars during the 19th century because of the lack of technologies and fuels 240 million people were killed in the 20th century by its wars because of widespread discovery and extraction of fossil fuels. Most of the technologies that emerged during the 20th century for wars and warfare depended on fossil fuels and that helped to make artilleries more sophisticated and accurate, more dependable and available; such artilleries butchered millions of wonderful humans for nothing! Artists constantly stood against such criminal intimidations and there are visibly reactions as ‘The Third of May 1808’ by Francisco Goya and the ‘Guernica’ by Picasso Etc.  Artists too have reasons on science even if that supports their existence and profession more tranquil and easy.

You need not be an artist or a scientist to be a good person to realize that killing another human being is inhuman and bad. Recently I watched a discussion on BBC news channel where artists and scientists discussed the very things you have mentioned, Mr. Pushkin. Scientists are as much worried about these things as the artists. Some artists said in the discussion, scientific revolution brought all bad things to the world. But according to scientists artists fail to realize that even before ‘science’ came into existence some human beings killed other human beings using stones! Science has nothing to do with it. Hitler was an artist! Genocide happened because of him. Did you ever heard any scientist becoming a Hitler and killing people on a large scale using gas chambers? It is the kings, leaders and politicians who used weapons of mass destruction. Not scientists. No scientist, in the history of the whole mankind ever used a weapon of mass destruction ‘on his own’.   In the previous centuries the population of the Earth was minimum. Now as  population growth occurred to a tremendous scale, any weapon used will kill more people per square kilometer than in the earlier centuries. You cannot compare one with the other as equations are different now.

G’Day Krishna, Creativity is the same, whether expressed as an aspect of science or as an aspect of art. Creativity is the way people solve problems. The problems typically solved (or attempted to) in science are different from those solved in art. The solutions are expressed as proof in science whereas in art they are a test of one alternative.

 Thank you so much!  I respect all the fields I work in equally although I think science is the toughest subject of all and need more effort to come up with solutions.  Some perspectives provided by artists are really wonderful and enhance my capacity to understand the world in a better way.  Each artist thinks and sees the world around him in a different way. That variety makes the art world very rich. Sometimes I wonder without all the colours , varieties, different perspectives how would the world be? Dull and boring I suppose!
