SEEING SCIENCE: Photography, Science and Visual Culture is a year-long project whose goal is to explore:
- the central role photographic images play in defining, shaping, promoting, and furthering science and
- how photographic images made in and about the sciences impact public opinion, policy and funding, science education, as well as visual and popular culture.
To engage not only the University community, but to reach a broader national and global audience, the SEEING SCIENCE project centers around online projects:
SEEING SCIENCE website features:
- Picturing Science: Each week the artist Oliver Wasow contributes a group of thematically grouped images culled from diverse online sources, transformed by their juxtaposition with each other.
- Weekly mini-exhibitions of historical and contemporary images made by scientists, photographers and artists
- Newly commissioned short essays by scientists, science and cultural historians, and visual culture writers who address the development, influence of, and issues surrounding scientific imaging
- Why We Look: Links to breaking news stories, commentary, and videos that track the use and impact of imaging in and on science
- An extensive timeline that tracks the historical inter-relationships of science and photographic imaging
- An interactive map of images made and used on campus by faculty members, researchers, and students in the course of their work
- Downloadable pdfs of project generated print materials, including SEEING SCIENCE tabloids and poster
