“Science and art collide in a magical way in Nikon’s Small World temporary exhibit,” said Susan Duvenhage, Adventure Science Center’s president and CEO. “A look at this gallery gives the observer a unique view of brilliant colors and intricate shapes that appear larger than life. But in reality, it’s the microscopic world all around us.”
Since 1975, the Nikon International Small World Competition has been revealing the beauty hidden in scenes too small for the naked eye to see, and it has quickly risen to become the leading showcase for photomicrographers around the world to unite art and science.
The winning image from the 2014 competition was awarded to Rogelio Moreno of Panama for capturing a rarely seen view of a rotifer’s open mouth interior and heart-shaped corona. His work, along with 19 others, is displayed in high resolution for guests to enjoy.
Other photos on display include crystalline fractures, jumping spider eyes, a DVD circuit board and more. The exhibit closes Dec. 16 and is included with general admission.
