Abstract: Currently, various challenges fusing science and art (known as "science art") have been encountered. In this paper, we investigate how mass media deal with science art through a text analysis of the articles about the transgenic art of Eduardo Kac. Kac's works were presented when the debates concerning genetically modified organisms (GMOs) got complicated. Particularly, GFP Bunny Alba, one of his works, came to be described as a symbol of transgenic technologies and genetically modified organisms in those news articles. It was found that there are several frames of reference in articles about Kac's works: discussions on GMOs, perspectives on religions and ethics, and the possibilities or wonderment derived from the fusion of different genres. Considering text analysis, we discuss the role of science arts (1) to give scientific knowledge to people, (2) to give speculative images of the future world or alarming derived from new scientific technologies, and (3) to call attention to advances in scientific knowledge.
