Art and Science, an LMAC Special - Teaming up with STEMsocial

in Let's Make a Collage10 months ago (edited)


Welcome to an Art & Science Special by STEMsocial & Let's Make a Collage!

Art and science are natural companions. Both disciplines can only advance through skills, experience and creativity! It is deeply rooted in human nature to process and understand the world through art and science. From the first cave paintings to our understanding of the cosmos - art and science led us all the way. To celebrate the deep connection between science and art, we partnered up with Hive's STEMsocial community for an LMAC Special!

⚛️ In this LMAC special we ask all participants to interpret the exciting theme of dark matter and let this fascinating substance materialize as a collage.

💡 To learn about the scientific background of dark matter, read 👉 this great review article by @lemouth, renowned particle physicist and founder of the STEMsocial community. In this very interesting article you will surely find some inspiration for how to tackle this dark matter challenge!

Before jumping into it, feel invited to visit the the STEMsocial Discord server to interact with the team and creators of this exciting community:

⭐️⭐️⭐️ STEMsocial aims to provide, on Hive, a space for STEM experts and passionate bloggers to freely share their knowledge in a great social media environment. In other words, our goal is to build a unique way to communicate about the STEM disciplines. We feature all kinds of STEM articles delivered by our community members, and we are happy to be able to learn day after day about the specific topics brought by our authors. In order to learn more about us, feel free to visit our community tag on Hive.

🚨 STEMSocial will sponsor a special prize for this challenge (see below) and support all rule-compliant entries with their community trail too! 👏👏👏 Never was it more worthwhile to join the fun!

❗️ As always, we encourage all participants to use LIL assets in their collages and will provide additional rewards for doing so:

👉 👈

  • For each LIL-asset used, the corresponding LIL-contributors are expected to be added as 2% beneficiary each in the respective LMAC entry!
  • In turn, collages using LIL-assets will be supported with a higher vote weight by our trail!

We hope that many of you will dive into the LIL to find images for your next collage.

👩‍⚖️ As our guest judge for this week please welcome @queenstarr! Starr's collages scored highest in the previous two round's of the LMAC and thus she will support our standing jury in nominating the finalists of this round.

And now, let's get this started!

Can you "see" the dark matter in this image? How do you interprete the appearance of this elusive substance? Show us what you see out there in hiding. Your imagination is the only limit!
