The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne presents a collection of intriguing and beautiful images created by scientists and researchers. At the medical research institute, scientists and researchers focus on preventing and treating immune disorders, cancer and diseases. Through art, the Institute brings together a group of medical researchers and scientists to capture aesthetic imageries on a microscopic scale.
The exhibition showcases 15 shortlisted artworks from the 2016 Art of Science competition that offer an insight to the biomedical research field. We are invited to explore the internal world of research and take a closer inspection of cells, organoid, tissues, immune system and also discover 3D imaging technology.
Visitors have the opportunity to explore the inner world of scientists and researchers, and also vote for their favourite image. The exhibition is an inviting and informative narrative, allowing the viewer to learn and engage with the biomedical field through art.
