(UN)REAL

(UN)REAL – an online exhibition on the tension between the actual and the observed.

What is real, and how can you be sure of this? Can you be confident in your perceptions when so many experiences are digital or influenced by the changing chemistry and architecture of your brain? Biomedical research uncovers ways that our minds and ­senses produce gaps between the actual and the observed. (UN)REAL – the online exhibition of the new Science Gallery Rotterdam – explores the tension between reality and perception.

Science Gallery Rotterdam at Erasmus MC invites you to engage with art projects that respond to this fertile terrain between the actual and the perceived. They address topics including our self-perception or the possibility of female sperm. An overview of all the artists can be found here and William Myers wrote an introduction essay on (UN)REAL.

Science Gallery Rotterdam in the Erasmus Medical Centre is a new meeting place for research, society, art, and healthcare.
