When we talk about bioinspired art it does not mean necessarily that we are inspired by images produced by biology scientists but that we understand natural processes and mechanisms and apply them to art production. If not what is the difference between an electron microscope image of, let's say, a beautiful bacteria and a landscape? Should we paint it like an impressionist? Or isn't it more interesting, and artistic, to study the bacteria and use the acquired knowledge to generate art works?
