Get to know the exhibit

Our vision capabilities are limited: we cannot see what is tiny or far away. Through time, we have invented tools that had helped us push the limits of the visible. “Microlife” is an incredible and surprising voyage to that world, at the same time very close by but “far away”. This Expografic production with the curatorial direction of  the Area de investigacion, Ciencia y Medio Ambiente, Obra Social "la Caixa" invites us to meet a whole universe of “microorganisms”, together with the introduction of a series of optical tools that will allow us to understand, experiencing hands on, the concept of optical augmentation. The whole exhibition is based on the extraordinary imagery developed by photographer / biologist Rubén Duro (ASA) who has explored this microscopic world through the dark field microscope technique, obtaining beautiful images of amazing creatures.
