An exhibition of pictorial moments from research on wood and other renewable materials
Researchers document phases of their scientific work and experimental results with images and drawings, which are most often made by computer programs and special devices (optical and electron microscopes, spectrometers, computed tomography ). Objects in this exhibition are taken from research related to wood and other renewable materials.
Taking these objects out of a scientific context, we realize the images have astonishing structures, compositions, and colours that can easily be seen as art. Beauty can be found everywhere – even beyond detection of the naked eye.
The exhibition enters science through this aesthetic door, surprising the viewer with shapes, colours, and compositions beyond the horizon of the expected, the predictable. Although the images seem like an artistic abstraction or a game of patterns, they show actual, tangible objects that were not created as works of art.
Until the end of July, the selection of paintings can be seen also in an outdoor exhibition. You are kindly invited on Sončno nabrežje in Izola, Slovenia!
