Opening our eyes to magic of science
TAKE another look: Dublin's streetscape will be decorated for the next week with rarely glimpsed images from the world of science, ranging from the tiniest bacteria to the 27km long large hadron collider.
The Health Research Board has commissioned the street art collection, titled 'Curious', as part of the Dublin City of Science initiative that aims to to capture people's imaginations and showcase the magic of science.
From images of burst blood vessels to up-close inspections of dental plaque in the mouth, the collection is designed to create a greater appreciation of science and its role in our everyday lives.
The exhibits, which can be seen on Liberty Hall, at Pearse Street, and at Baggott Street Bridge over the next week, were unveiled yesterday by Jobs and Enterprise Minister Richard Bruton.
Dublin City of Science is a year-long celebration of science, with more than 16 events planned across the capital.
