This exhib­it fea­tures images and objects drawn from a vari­ety of dis­ci­plines and time peri­ods that show the impor­tance of visu­al expe­ri­ences in sci­ence. Images have played many roles in sci­en­tif­ic research. Images can record fleet­ing obser­va­tions, whether a paint­ing of an ani­mal glimpsed in the field or an inter­ac­tion between sub-atom­ic par­ti­cles that lasts a mil­lisec­ond. They can also make unseen things vis­i­ble. Phys­i­cal mod­els can make abstract math­e­mat­i­cal con­cepts into some­thing that researchers can touch; prop­er­ly arranged, sand, met­al plates, and a vio­lin bow can make sound waves into images. Find­ing pat­terns in both kinds of images, or painstak­ing­ly trans­form­ing images into data can lead to new discoveries.
