Monday Sept 21st 1PM: A virtual gallery tour in the beautiful world of PoreLab’s research – science is art, art is science

Welcome to the opening of our virtual gallery exhibition on Monday September 21st at 1PM!

 

Beauty can be found in the most ordinary of things. Some of the greatest scientists that ever lived endorse this viewpoint. Richard Feynman, in one of his many strokes of pure genius boldly spoke about the several layers of beauty that he – a curious observer of reality – could see in a flower. His “Ode to a Flower” is filled to the brim with the scientific and aesthetic joy. When scientists turn to art, they do not turn away from the study of reality. Albert Einstein himself once said “The greatest scientists are artists as well”.  

 

At PoreLab, the Porous Media Laboratory, we are lucky enough to work in a field in which one really does not need to look too much to find aesthetically pleasing images. Everything is beautiful if you look closely and carefully enough. Over the years we have come across a tremendous collection of striking visual patterns, stunning compositions of matter and motion brought to us by nature itself. We have curated some of our finest work, from an esthetic point of view, and made an exhibition, so it is our pleasure now to turn public a selection of some of our most beautiful moments, in a virtual gallery, accessible to everyone. 

 

To celebrate we want to invite you to our gallery opening on Zoom. At the opening we will give you an introduction and a guided tour through the gallery. Some of the artists will be present and available for questions or comments you might have.
