Being creative means making or doing something new with what we have, and art is a big part of this. As artists find new ways to represent the world, they also find new ways to make their art. As new devices and tools make their way into the hands of consumers, those who are creative end up thinking of novel ways to use them. It is the same for concepts, when new thoughts and information make it into the mass consciousness, artists and creative people represent these things in ways that communicate and explore.
New heat activated disappearing ink is making a big noise for doodle artists, and this picture from Mashable shows why.

The pens work by having a pigment which changes at a given temperature. It's a bit of chemistry and art all in one.
From chemistry to biological psychology, a neuroscience exhibition by Talking Heads co-founder and artist David Bryne is using concepts and ideas from this wing of the scientific field to make new and interesting artworks. The work benefits science in the way that in the action of teaching it, it uses the visitors as part of it, gathering data for new experiments as they go.
Art can be used in ways that most people wouldn't even dream of, and in doing so, new ideas, thinking, and information can be passed along a chain of people without having to sit through boring lectures on morals or philosophy.
