HUMAN-MODEL-WORLD: A collection of scientific images


About the exhibition

Imaging technologies have become an extension of our senses and memory, therefore a versatile scientific tool, extending and shaping how we understand ourselves and the worlds around us.

For the fifth anniversary of the Bridge Network, scientists across its institutes have submitted images emerging from their research, showing glimpses of their laboratories and subjects.

The collection mirrors the multitudes of research fields within the network and in many instances blurs the lines between observation, documentation as well as the image becoming the actual center point of a researcher’s inquiry. From artificial organ-like microstructures used in medical research up to clusters of galaxies at the edge of the universe and everything in between, the images loosely cluster into the sectors HUMAN / MODEL / WORLD through a play of scales, methods and subjects. The clusters blend into one another on the premise that scientific inquiry expands continuously and multidirectional.

** Due to ongoing commitments as of May 2023, the Communications Department of the Weizmann Institute of Science was unable to participate in this shared exhibition.
