Exhibition: Levät - Algae - Alger

Algae and other microscopic marine organisms come to life through 3D-models, images and videos.

Exhibition visitors will come face-to-face with enlarged 3D models of marine microbes, modelled with computer-aided design from electron microscope images and printed in an algae-based plastic. Augmented reality (AR) will allow participants to use their phones as tools to unlock videos and further knowledge of the microbes they are looking at. Exhibition attendees also get the chance to participate in doctoral research about human-algae relationships. This research is part of Sonja Repetti's doctoral thesis research at the University of Helsinki (and Tvärminne Zoological Station), which aims to understand the capacity of algae to respond and adapt to environmental change, as well as what people know and how they feel about algae.
