Art in Science – University of Copenhagen

What is ARTiS?

Science and technology are integral parts of our daily life, but scientific research can be difficult to access for non-experts. However, the perception of aesthetics is universal, and visual, artistic representations can be a vehicle for the communication of complex realities. The mission of ARTiS is to leverage the power of art to communicate science and technology to a broad audience.

To achieve this goal, we organise an annual competition where scientists submit their most beautiful research images together with a description of the research behind them. Selected pictures are exhibited during Culture Night and at other exhibitions, as well as shared through social media.

In addition to exhibitions, we organize STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities combining art and science as an active learning method for children. Our ultimate vision is to make science accessible for everyone.
