“Life in Perspective” — Exhibition opened!
We perceive our world as a three-dimensional reality. A truism forms the basis of “Life in Perspective”. The exhibition places the beauty of nature in the center using 3D posters about micro-organisms, thus translating the micro-world into a familiar imagery. It is a change in perspective, which visualizes science in a comprehensive way by means of photography and computer design approaching an artistic dimension.
What is a lenticular poster?
A lenticular print is a technique which allows many images to be shown on the same poster. This technique has been used extensively in the past and examples span from interactive postcards to public spaces decoration. The principle relies on the interlaced printing of different images (for instance different frames of a video or different point of view from the same scene) on which an array of micro-lenses is superimposed. This leads to the formation of different images depending on the position of the viewer.
The advances in printing technology as well as in the production of fine lenses allow the creation of the illusion of movement, depth, or a combination of both. For depth representation, the observer’s brain can be tricked in seeing depth in the represented sample via the print of images from different angle of the same object. Moving around the lenticular poster permits to explore the object in 3D.
What do we use lenticular posters for?
Life In Perspective aims at turning biological object from scientific research into art in their full 3D representation. Our main medium is lenticular posters. Once rendered and printed, objects that once were scientific samples become striking representation of nature hidden secrets.
Rendering is the final process of creating the actual 2D image or animation from the prepared scene. This can be compared to taking a photo or filming the scene after the setup is finished in real life. Several different, and often specialized, rendering methods have been developed.
Collaborative work is one of the foundations behind the “Life in Perspective” initiative. As such, we are always in search of new exciting partners and collaborators. If you have ideas, scientific data, expertise you would like to share with us, or if you would like to support the initiative financially or even if you found anything you would be interested for private use, feel free to drop us a message!
Want to participate?
- Collaborate with us. Send us scientific images you deem worth showing in 3D.
- Sponsor an art piece. Your organisation name will appear besides the piece in the various places where this piece will be exposed. You will then be able to reuse this piece for communication to the general public or your clients, in various event booth or at your location.
- Contribute financially to the organisation of the exhibition. Be one of the main sponsor of the event.
