Science Visualization

The common understanding of modern scientific research becomes more and more difficult as activities are carried out in size and time ranges we cannot perceive with the unaided eye. The key to understanding is often a visualization of these hidden processes. The Science Visualization Lab at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria, specializes in making invisible scientific phenomena visible and disseminating this visual information in research and artistic exhibitions. The primary objectives of the lab are keeping the authenticity of the scientific data used, while also crafting captivating and imaginative artistic expressions.
