Enlightenment: The art of science photographic exhibition

An arts exhibition, inspired by scientific research being conducted at the Scottish Research Institutes forming the knowledgescotland partnership, was launched at the Dovecot studios in Edinburgh on 8th March.

The exhibition, called ENLIGHTENMENT, has been developed by Moredun Research Institute and features a creative mix of arts and science images by Scottish photographer David McIntyre. Mr McIntyre spent time with researchers throughout Scotland discussing their research before using the medium of photography to create graphic and abstract images inspired by the science.

There are 30 images in the exhibition with accompanying text and it is hoped that the images provoke curiosity and draw people to the caption to find out more about the science that inspired the image.

Here are a selection of images from the Exhibition:

Immune Protection  Right of WayWelfare Protection  Flower Power

Pteridomania  Immigration Control

The exhibition has since been displayed at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and is due to go to numerous locations throughout Scotland in the coming months.
