PNSO’s Scientific Art Projects Plan: The Stories on Earth (2010-2070)

PNSO is an organization devoted to the creation of and research related to scientific art. The organization was founded in Beijing on June 1st, 2010, by Mr. ZHAO Chuang, a Scientific Artist, and Ms. YANG Yang, an author of scientific children’s books. At its founding, PNSO launched its Scientific Art Projects Plan: The Stories on Earth (2010-2070). The plan follows a tradition of using scientific art to create a narrative. These narratives are based on the latest scientific research, focusing on the complex relationships between species, natural environments, communities, and cultures. The narratives consider the perspectives of human civilization while exploring Earth’s past, present, and future. The PNSO founders plan to spend 60 years creating works in and doing research on scientific art, and literature. They hope to share scientific knowledge through publications, exhibitions, and courses. Their overarching goal is to serve research institutions and the general public, especially young people.

PNSO has independently completed or participated in a number of creative projects and research projects. The organization’s work has been shared widely and well received. With regard to PNSO’s collaborations with professional scientists, PNSO has been invited to many key laboratories around the world to create scientific works of art. Many works produced by PNSO staff members have been published in leading journals, including Nature, Science, and Cell. This evinces PNSO’s support for state-of-the-art scientific explorations. Also, a large number of articles and works completed by PNSO staff members were published and cited in hundreds of well-known media outlets, including The New York Times, Washington Post, The Guardian, Asahi Shimbun, People’s Daily, BBC, CNN, Fox News, and CCTV. The works created by PNSO staff members have been used to help the public better understand the latest scientific discoveries and developments. In the public education sector, PNSO has held joint exhibitions with scientific organizations including the American Museum of Natural History, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the City Museum of Nottingham, and the Chongqing Museum of Natural History.
