Share your work in the ASC2012 Science-as-Art Exhibition

Have you created engaging visuals to communicate science?

You are invited to share your work in the ASC2012 Science-as-Art Exhibition!

Science can be beautiful and the visualisation of science is a universal and ancient means of communication and engagement.

The Science-As-Art exhibition at the ASC2012 conference will showcase examples of science visualisation created by scientists, science-artists and science communicators right across Australia.

This is an exhibition for anyone interested in science and communicating science visually.

Prizes will be awarded.
