The Art and Science of the SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope)

Location: UCB 100

Presentation on innovative new course integrating art and UH Hilo’s Scanning Electron Microscope, Dec. 9 [Free Public Talk]

Colleen Cannon-Karlos, lecturer in the art department, and Jason Adolf, associate professor of marine science will present 'The Art and Science of the SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope)' on Wednesday, Dec. 9th, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.​ This presentation will be held at the University Classroom Building, room 100, on the UH Hilo campus.

Art students at UH Hilo participated in a science course last fall using the university’s Scanning Electron Microscope. A Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), which can magnify objects up to about 300,000 times the size of the object, reveals the fantastic topography of a specimen so highly resolved that it shows the microscopic structure in incredible detail unavailable to the naked eye or even light microscopes. The resulting imagery is beautiful, provocative and awe-inspiring—a perfect blending of art and science.

Working with this technology, art students at UH Hilo participated in a science course last fall using the university’s Scanning Electron Microscope. Students prepared and scanned specimens using the SEM, the imagery was then digitally dissected, merged, and reconfigured, and then used as design elements in an art project using Photoshop.

At the Dec. 9 lecture, Adolf and Cannon-Karlos will present the project and the students’ work.
