Every picture tells a story…of research at Bath!

2010年5月4日

Pictures, it is said, can tell a thousand words.

Well, academics and researchers from the University of Bath hope to do just that in a new photography exhibition taking place in the city this month.

Researchers have the challenge of explaining their research to the public just by the use of a single striking image and a short piece of text.

The Images of Research exhibition will be held at The Octogon, Milsom Place, Bath on Friday 14 May and Saturday 15 May.

It’s aim is to highlight and explain to the public some of the wide range of research that takes place at the University and follows on the success of last year’s inaugural exhibition.

Each image will have a short abstract explaining what it is, what the research is about and why it is being undertaken. Visitors will also have an opportunity to vote for their favourite image.

This year the exhibition will focus on the impact that the research has on society, environment and economy.

University of Bath Staff Development Manager Jeanette Müller said: “The exhibition allows the public to find out directly from academics and researchers about the work happening at the University.

“It builds on the success of last year which visitors found inspiring, fun and stimulating. The researchers enjoyed the different reactions their entries elicited in people and how all the visitors had different interpretations of them.

“They were often astounded by how our understanding of science has developed and were mostly very excited to learn about it.”

There will be a prize for the best photo, abstract, and for the image voted as most popular by the public.

The exhibition will be open to the public from 11am to 6.30pm on Friday and 11am to 5pm on Saturday.
