Travel through the past and future of our world with these six short films. A world in which there is much to discover with the right gaze, from microscopic details to gigantic dimensions.


TALK Hoe kunnen nieuwe lenzen en spiegels onze blik veranderen? Roel van der Heijden is redacteur Astrononomie, Natuurkunde en Techniek bij NEMO Kennislink. En in zijn vrije tijd bouwde hij jarenlang aan een eigen spiegeltelescoop. Die is nu af. Na de film vertelt hij over wat het bouwen van deze telescoop hem heeft gebracht. Hoe heeft het zijn blik op ons universum veranderd? Na het programma gaan we samen naar buiten en krijgen we een kans om zelf een blik te werpen door deze prachtige kijken.  

Dit programma is een samenwerking met NEMO Kennislink.  

Biopixels

Biopixels

Butterflies and moths comprise 12% of all species known to man (180,000 species!), and their seemingly endless biodiversity is visually translated on their wings through color and pattern variation. Shot at two cutting-edge research labs which specialize in the evolution of butterflies and moths, BIopixels is an animated short exploring the world of evolutionary biology on the microscopic scale.

Nanoscapes

Nanoscapes

Making the invisible, visible! Images of butterfly wings at the microscopic scale are stunning, and at the nanoscopic scale they become otherworldly. These images were taken with light and electron microscopes at magnifications up to 50,000x. Nanoscapes is an artistic reimagining of exciting new research focused on how butterflies actually build these remarkable, infinitesimal landscapes.
