BAW exhibition "The Brain as Art"

When: 12.03.2018, at 12:00-13:00

Art exhibition "The Brain as Art"

The exhibition grand opening on March 12 at 12.00 in front of the cafe Astrarium.

"The Brain as Art" exhibit seeks to blur the line between science and art. Some images take scientific results and re-interpret them as an homage to different styles of art. Others simply show the beauty of the brain and brain cells as seen down the oculars of a microscope, or rather, in our day and age, as photons collected by a camera and rendered as an image onto our computer screens. We hope they inspire you to learn more about this amazing organ and the scientist who study it.

The exhibition is available 06.03.-15.04.2018.

Also near part of the art exhibition is mystical clouds, where you can test if you can recognize animals, objects and faces. Take an outline of your drawing with you or leave it on our board to share with others!
