Opening Reception: June 16, 6 - 9 pm
The history of photography is one of scientific discovery and technological breakthrough. Our ability to “see” something is central to our ability to understand it.
But how much certainty and knowledge can a photographic image truly convey?
In a new series of photographs featuring subjects as vast and complex as the birth of our solar system, gravitational waves, and the behavior of neutrinos, Eric Ziegler takes us to the current edges of human understanding.
Painstakingly rendered from the files of leading scientific bodies like NASA, NOAA and the LIGO Laboratory, these extraordinary works invite us to explore the truth of the photographic image and ourselves.
Eric Zeigler teaches Photography and New Media at the University of Toledo. After receiving his BFA from Bowling Green State University he continued his studies at San Francisco Art Institute where he received an MFA.
