Time and again, science pushes boundaries into unknown territory and renders the previously invisible visible. In no area of scientific inquiry is this more evident than with the documentation process itself. Here, scientific research frequently produces images of strikingly aesthetic, structures and colors- abstract pieces of art from a world invisible to the eye.

Every year, Germany’s Max Planck Society asks scientists from their 80 institutes and research facilities to provide images of their research that are then juried by a panel of architects, photographers and journalists. Their selections form the basis of a traveling exhibit- Images of Science. So far, there have been three rounds of competition and the exhibit, which is currently composed of 48 images, has traveled to a variety of destinations including Deutches Museum Munchen (German Museum Munich); Ars Electronica, Linz, Austria; Haus der Wissenschaft (House of Science), Bremen, Germany; and the German Embassy, Bangkok, Thailand, among others.
