The aim of the event is to promote the need and the difficulties in communicating the scientific work to a broader audience, as well as to seek the limits between science and art. In the first section of the event «Public Engagement with Research», organizations and initiatives which connect the scientists – researchers with a broad audience, are presented.

The second section of the event comprises of the visual arts exhibition entitled «Beyond Science», where new/young scientists talk about their research project/work through photography, video, graphs, painting, assemblage and jewels. Through the organic structures that one can see in the microscope, the underwater forms that one can capture with his photographic lense and the compositions inspired by the scientific research, science meets the art – with common starting point the observation, as well as the creative “perplexity” towards the beauty of nature, the (a)symmetry, the complexity or the simplicity.

Peggy Kliafa participates with the triptych Bacteria (“Bacteria I or Map”, “Bacteria II or Vortex” and “Bacteria V”), which consits of 3 big size canvases (140 x 140cm), made from the small round aluminum foils from the back side of the pills blisters, sticked on the canvas . The Bacteria series of artworks is inspired by Biology and more specifically from the impressive forms that the bacteria colonies create, when seen from the microscope. The enlargement of these infinite minimum forms highlights their huge power and their representation with  assemblage of small aluminum foils of the pills blisters on the prepared canvas allows the existence, in each artwork, of the problem and its solution, of the sickness and the cure, probably of life and death.
