“Arts & Science” goes back to a competition among the members of CUI. The exhibition presents images from the micro world of scientific fundamental research at the cluster of excellence CUI – wavelike shapes and colour explosions, but also direct images recorded with electron microscopes. There is a lot of room for interpretation and it is up to the observers to just let the beauty of the images sink in or to learn about the physics and chemistry behind the images from the accompanying texts in English and German.
