Scientific research - in photographs
Art and science – both disciplines query concepts and theories, explore new contexts, and render abstract information tangible. Both are strongly motivated by creativity and the ability to visualize. Looking Glass combines the two genres in a playful manner: photography and molecular biology.
The book conveys highly complex content in an emotional-esthetic way, and thereby shines a new light on pure molecular research: groundbreaking discoveries made at the IMBA and published in prestigious media (Nature, Cell, Science and others) are transformed into unique photo galleries—visualized with applied photography—which imbue the fundamental mechanisms of life with stories.
