Event Image

Seventeen years after its debut at RIT, an international juried exhibition highlighting captivating photography, video, animation and illustration in service of science is coming home. “Images from Science 3” is a showcase 82 extraordinary, science-based pieces of media from 71 image makers residing in 15 different countries.The show is on view from Nov. 1-24 at RIT City Art Space. An opening reception is scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1. It is free, open to the public and part of First Friday. Additionally, there is a gallery talk with the organizers and image makers set for 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at RIT City Art Space.All of the images were selected by an international panel of experts. And like the first two iterations of the exhibit, in 2002 and 2008, it will travel to other locations.“Images from Science” is a collaborative experiment started at RIT in 2002 by School of Photographic Arts and Sciences faculty members Michael Peres and professor emeritus Andy Davidhazy. Peres was joined by fellow faculty Ted Kinsman and Bob Rose, Norman Baker, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine professor, and noted professor of graphic design and College of Art and Design associate dean of graduate studies Chris Jackson to produce "Images from Science 3." It was organized to celebrate the production of stunning images featuring science. The project's core mission is to explore the interface of science, technology, art, design and communication.Since the first two iterations of "Images from Science," much has changed. Coupled with new optical and other imaging software, nothing seems out of the realm of what is possible in the creation of images for science. “From picturing the invisible realm of human DNA to exploring the rings of Saturn or viewing Earth’s global warming, photography and science are indispensable partners whose evolving story continues to shape the ways we know ourselves and our seen and unseen world,” said Therese Mulligan, School of Photographic Arts and Sciences director. After its run at RIT City Art Space, the exhibit will travel to Johns Hopkins University. It is available for travel to other venues. A companion book, published by RIT Press, will be available for purchase at the opening reception and is also sold here.Above image of the back of a human eye with congenital retinal pigment epithelial hypertrophy (also called bear tracks) by Chris Barry
