Carl Bosch Museum Heidelberg Special Exhibit Fascination Color with simulated bee and butterfly vision images

Today about a forthcoming special exhibit "fascination Color" at the Carl Bosch Museum, Heidelberg Germany which will be open from 12. September 2015 - 3. April 2016. Some of my best works will be shown in our human vision, and in simulated bee and butterfly vision.

Here the introductory text: "How do colors come into existence? What are colors used for? What really is color? These and many other questions are answered by the exhibition and illustrates how broad ranged the subject of colors actually is. With many exciting exhibits, visitors learn that we see colors not only with our eyes and experience how other people and animals see the colorful world. The symbolic and social meanings of colors are explained, as is the extraction and use of historic natural colors, up to modern industrial dyes." [translation by me]

The Carl Bosch Museum has chosen some of my best works, as they show quite surprisingly how different bees and butterflies see the world, as compared to how we humans see it!

If you find time to, pay it a visit, it will certainly be worth going with your whole family!

The Carl Bosch Museum Heidelberg has been founded and is being actively supported by Gerda Tschira, wife of recently deceased SAP founding member Klaus Tschira . The non-profit Klaus Tschira Foundation promotes the advancement of natural sciences, mathematics, and computer science and strives to raise appreciation for these fields. 

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
