NanoCosmos contemporary art exhibition
As part of the Oslo Life Science Conference 2020, the Gözen group at NCMM will exhibit a range of their microscopy images at the Kunstplass Contemporary Art Exhibition Space in central Oslo.
The NanoCosmos exhibition will provide a glimpse into the nano world – a 'Wunderkammer' where science becomes art. This event was established by the Programmable Cell-like Compartments interdisciplinary research environment at the University of Oslo, which features NCMM's Irep Gözen along with other researchers from the fields of Mathematics, Philosophy and Medical Science.
The exhibition was created by Gry Oftedal (Faculty of Humanities) from the research environment, and will feature a selection of the Gözen group's striking microscopy images in the field of bio-nanotechnology and cell formation. Also on display will be works by other members of the research environment; Professor Harald Stenmark (Faculty of Medicine) and Andreas Carlson (The Faculty of Mathematics).
There will be an opening event on Tuesday February 11th at 6PM, where it will be possible to meet the researchers and learn more about the images and the science behind their creation. As part of the opening event, the Rector of the University of Oslo, Svein Stølen will introduce the exhibition, followed by some opening remarks by the Director of UiO:Life Science, Carl Henrik Gørbitz.
