Max Planck Images of Science Exhibition

6/12/2014, 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM | New York, NY

Max Planck Images of Science Exhibition

• Max Planck Society

The German Center for Research and Innovation and Max Planck Society cordially invited to the Images of Science Exhibition with a talk on "Neurological Diseases in Mice" by Dr. Klaus-Armin Nave.

Science often pushes back the boundaries of the known world to explore the new and make the unseen visible. In addition to a purely scientific documentation of research, sometimes images are created that feature surprisingly aesthetic forms and structures: abstract works of art from a world normally hidden to the human eye.

For the exhibition, scientists from the more than 80 research institutes of the Max Planck Society have contributed images of their work from widely varying research fields. The techniques used range from conventional photography to colored microscopic images - light microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, scanning tunneling microscopy – through to computer simulation.

The selection shown at this exhibition consisted of 20 large-format images.
