Science and art are generally compared with each other in terms of their similarities and differences. Syntheses of science and art can be expressed with regards to terms art's contributions through imagination and scientific data's reflections on artistic applications. Research processes that begin with the sense of wonder also show similarity within the comparison between science and art. Also, evaluations are made in different perspectives with views concerning the differences between science and art. Nowadays, the applications that include interdisciplinary work with the convergence of fields of science and art have gained acceptance by a wide variety of research methods. Technology also plays a role in these applications through digitalization in obtaining scientific data and methods of visualization. Contribution to art and education fields is envisaged through application examples produced within the context of science-art synthesis and application-research methods guiding interdisciplinary education. The goal of this study is to reveal how the research methods of visual art works that contain scientific data created by scientist-artists become. The study has been carried out with the literature review. In the research, artistic applications that include scientific information were discussed under themes according to their different prominent characteristics. In the research, various viewpoints concerning application methods that artists who make use of scientific information and materials, that artists who are educated in science and art serve in these two areas, that are cooperative ones conducted through community participation and dual group or multiple groups having proficiency in various areas, and that are the multi-dimensional digital ones through the synthesis of science, art, and technology were revealed. In these practices, artists/scientists have demonstrated the holistic perspective of both fields by experiencing both the process of inquiry for scientific knowledge and aesthetic inquiry in their research paths.
