Stefanie Reichelt in The Art of Scientific Imaging

Nicole Ottawa
Tardigrade (Waterbear) Nicole Ottawa: Reutlingen, Germany. The Waterbear or Tardigrade is a 0.1-1mm small animal. It lives in wet moss and consists of only a few hundred cells. This species feeds on nematodes and rotatoria. In case of its environment drying off they can enter a cryptobiotic state of desiccation, known as a tun, to survive. In this state, water bears can survive for up to a decade. Copyright Science Photo Library

LIP member Stefanie Reichelt, scientist and founder and curator of ArtCell Gallery, has organised a day of photography talks and activities to feature alongside this exhibition of the Royal Photographic Society.

The event is part of the Cambridge Science Festival 2014. All talks and activities are open to anyone. The focus will be on scientific imaging, but it will be fun and entertaining and suitable for adults and children over 14. High-speed photography and 3D-imaging/holography will be particularly stunning.

Children and adults are also offered the rare opportunity to enter the Camper Obscura – the camper van which is a camera. The van will be parked outside the Cancer Research UK CI building on 15th March, and in Cambridge city centre on 16th March.

Stefanie will speak 15th March at 4pm, where she will show that art and science are not disparate, but complementary ways of seeing the world.

The full programme for the day can be found at this link.

The RPS exhibition runs 5 March – 30 April 2014
