What goes unseen, unfelt, or unheard? In this online exhibition, the artworks converge with scientific experiment, using digital tools to creatively reinterpret the imperceptible and science of the unseen.
Artworks in Science of the Unseen: Digital Art Perspectives think creatively about questions of scale and how unseen processes animate larger effects. By using digital tools and computational programs, we see with new eyes as we view visual material from the microscopic cell to the cosmic universe. Technology increasingly alters the senses and our experience of the biological, astrological, and geological landscape. From our new ways of seeing, questions emerge such as: how does nano-technology mirror and magnify the art of nature? How does visualizing insect burrows in trees allow us to interpret a larger ecosystem? Or we can ask what still remains unseen: how do organisms form new imperceptible habits in response to technology?
