Dotography: The World’s First Invisible Photography Exhibition Harmony FerinJanuary 14, 20188 viewslifestyle0 Comments8 views The wonder of science and engineering is being demonstrated today with a photography exhibition the likes of which the world has never seen before: one where all of the photographs are invisible. Opened by The Big Bang Fair, Dotography: The World’s First Invisible Photography Exhibition is a gallery of printed images so small that they are totally invisible to the naked eye, and can only be seen through a special microscope. The microscopic pictures at the gallery were all created using state-of-the-art nanotechnology from engineers at Scrona. The company employs a gold nanoparticle printing process that enables them to print super-sharp and detailed pictures to an astonishingly small scale: comparable to the diameter of a single human hair. Dotography runs until 28th January at the Birmingham Bullring Link Street, Unit K2. Upon entry to the exhibition in Birmingham, visitors could be forgiven for thinking they are looking at dozens of empty photo frames. But once armed with a hi-spec handheld microscope that clips onto the back of a regular smartphone, visitors will find a world of miniaturised photography open up in front of their eyes. The unique photography exhibition has been designed by The Big Bang Fair to inspire young people to consider a future in STEM. The gallery allows these youngsters to witness ground-breaking developments first-hand (thanks to the invisible tech) and gain a greater appreciation of the ordinary and extraordinary roles that STEM plays in our lives (thanks to the subject of the photographs). Visitors attend world’s first “invisible” photography exhibition. Among the 22 pictures on display throughout the gallery space are a number of iconic photographs that celebrate landmark moments from the world of STEM: including Marie Curie at work in her laboratory in 1900, Albert Einstein with fellow theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer in 1950 and Neil Armstrong taking mankind’s first ever steps on the Moon in 1969 Harmony Ferin Running over four days between Wednesday 24th and Saturday 27th January, the exhibition is located on Link Street in Birmingham. Entry is completely free, with no ticket reservation necessary. For further information, click here.
