Open Show + Bay Area Science Festival
Seeing the Unseen
Explore the worlds beyond what our naked eyes can see with electron microscopy scientists, renowned data visualists, amateur astrophotographers and more.
Experience the stories of how the boundaries of photography and video are being pushed to illuminate the distant past, unfamiliar perspectives and the miniature ecosystems hidden in front of us.
Timelapse Earth -Jonathan Woods (Senior Multimedia Editor, Time Magazine) & Rebecca Moore (Engineering Manager Earth Engine, Google)
A joint project between Time and Google, Timelapse tells the story of a finite planet — razing as we build, destroying even as we preserve. These mesmerizing videos chronicle the evolution of our landscapes, created from decades of satellite imagery captured by the USGS, amassed by Google and curated by Time.
A Journey Through the Microcosm – Dr. Manfred Auer (Staff Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)
Head of the Auer Lab, Manfred will show his work visualizing cells and tissues at the macromolecular complex level using transmission electron microscopes and novel advanced 3D imaging. His recent work investigates the molecular mechanism of hearing, mammary gland development and breast cancer, microbial communities and biofilms.
Carbon III – Charles Lindsay (Artist in Residence at SETI Institute)
Charles invented the CARBON camera-less photographic process under a Guggenheim Fellowship to create art inspired by scientific processes. Electrifying and manipulating a frozen carbon-based emulsion, he blends high-definition photography and video to produce otherworldly fly-thrus of microscopic landscapes.
