Art can be found in unexpected places, even under a microscope. This tiny world reveals a range of patterns, symmetry and colours that cannot be seen with the naked eye; but using a high-resolution microscope and camera, you can access and capture this unique environment. From butterfly wings to cotton, discover the textures of different materials such as cloth, newspaper and sponge, or dive into some pond water and gain a new perspective on environmental health. Join us as we explore the fascinating art of microscopy and uncover the hidden beauty of the world around us.
