Perceiving the Invisible 2001 | An interactive digital installation designed to emulate the equipment at the physics laboratory. Infrared camera’s, gloves and a robotic arm allow participants to remotely explore objects insides the boxes. Objects include hand-sized models of microscopic structures based on Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope (ESEM) samples, glowing bioluminescence and galaxies imaged by the radio telescope.
