Citizen Artists

The term “citizen scientist” has become increasingly popular with the rise of DIY and crowdsourcing culture, where volunteer citizens can expand the capabilities and reach of scientists for the creation of larger and more comprehensive studies. Thanks to new apps and web-based platforms, the ability to participate in science is available outside of academia and industry. Citizens from all over the world are helping to solve some of humanity’s biggest and most complicated problems. And some of these citizen scientists are artists.
