MIT scientists use imagery to explore unknown worlds, from the depths of the oceans to the surface of a thin strip of photographic film. Scientific images can transcend disciplines, represent complex situations, communicate across languages, and ignite curiosity. Students took on their own interpretations of the challenge submitting works of an incredibly high standard.
Some chose to look at the natural world for inspiration and thought about how photography can ‘reveal’ more than we usually see. Others focused on plants and how they can appear different when looking at them in finer detail or from a fresh perspective. The photographs were taken all over the world, including some from our very own Krylatskoe and Rosinka campuses.
