Exhibition on Scientific and Artistic Images

May 15, 2018, at the École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Montpellier.

The research structures of the COSA Montpellier group also collaborate through an exhibition of their research work showcasing visuals that are both artistic and scientific.

ICGM visuals:

Originally prepared for the International Year of Chemistry 2011, the visuals in this exhibition were created by scientists from the Institut Charles Gerhardt Montpellier (ICGM) in collaboration with scientists from the Institut Européen des Membranes (IEM) and Microsystems (LMIS1), as well as the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)..

This public-oriented exhibition explores the theme of "Amazing Images of Chemistry," showcasing aesthetically pleasing objects or surprising situations from chemical research. It is linked to major societal issues such as Environment, Health, and Energy, which are the priority thematic axes of the Institut Charles Gerhardt Montpellier.

The selected photographs in this exhibition aim to reveal modern chemistry through a playful approach that stimulates the viewer's imagination and reflection, ultimately providing an objective explanation of what is observed. Since its inception, the exhibition on amazing images of chemistry has evolved and currently features 22 photographs.

IES Visuals:

The Institute of Electronics and Systems (IES) has developed a photo library thanks to the talent of several scientists who have also contributed to the CNRS photo library and have been featured on scientific magazine covers. The objective is to show the public different facets of science by presenting the often unexpected work of researchers in the form of real images.

The visuals from the traveling exhibition offered by IES as part of COSA reveal the applications derived from its research for everyday use. Here, the inquisitive eyes of the viewer find answers in the vibrant colors of laser beams and diodes (related to environment, agronomy, health, safety...), multijunction solar cells (aimed at reducing the production costs of photovoltaic energy), DC scanning probe stations (aiding in the design of low-noise circuits), optical fibers... and even the silver shavings produced by the mechanical workshop.
