In the wilderness of the corner, in the serenity of the sea.Like dust in the wind, raising all kinds of silence.The continuous beauty of the universe, is originally a self outstanding realm.
Through the lens, capturing the beauty from a scientific perspective, we depict the inner beauty of the world through visual imagery.
Following a three-stage review process by experts and scholars from various fields, three first prize winners, two Quanta Culture and Education Foundation Special Youth Award winners, two Scientific Koshien High School Student Special Award winners, two Scientific Koshien High School Student Encouragement Award winners, and 57 honorable mentions were selected. Among those who contributed award-winning works, 65 were from Taiwan and one was from Malaysia. In terms of subjects, most (19) were in the insect category, followed by the underwater and marine life (17), amphibians and reptiles (5), fungi (5), astronomy and meteorology (4), birds (4), plants (3), arthropods (3), geology and minerals (2), microscopic world (2), and physics and chemistry (2) categories. There were 32 submissions comprised of one image and 32 submissions comprised of three images (each 48%), as well as two submissions comprised of two images (3%).
Psychologist Carl Jung once said that through our senses, we experience what is known, but intuition points to those things that are hidden and unknown, which are essentially mysterious. The science images that have been submitted to this competition over the years have recorded the beauty and mysteries of science and captured the mysterious changes taking place in the environment.
Many thanks are owed to those who have contributed to and participated in the Particle Compositions with Magical Power ≋ Online Preview of the 8th Science Images Exhibition, for their hard work and enthusiasm. Each press of the shutter button is an exploration of the natural world and a testament to the interdependent relationship between humans and nature. The physical exhibition of these works will be launched in summer 2024. Since the first exhibition, the curatorial team has worked to incorporate an art/literature/music approach, introduce green circular design concepts, and integrate friendly and equal access facilities.
