About Envisioning Chemistry
Envisioning Chemistry is an online exhibition that blends chemistry and art, revealing the beauty of chemistry through special techniques such as microphotography, time-lapse photography, and infrared thermal imaging. It is a collaboration project between Beauty of Science and Chinese Chemical Society. It is also the sequel to the award-winning project Beautiful Chemistry launched 4 years ago.
Envisioning Chemistry includes 16 beautiful films. We have plans to continue releasing new content in the future. Through our efforts, we hope more people could appreciate the beauty and magic of chemistry.
About Beauty of Science
Founded in 2016, Beauty of Science (BOS) is a brand that creates science content that has a strong emphasis on artistic presentation. With a focus on K-12 science education and outreach, BOS also provides special content for commercial brands and film & TV industry.
Words from the Creators
From Wenting ZHU
Envisioning Chemistry tries to capture a purely objective record of chemical reactions. It grasps the images by using a macro lens and a microscope. In this way of viewing, we have a chance to look at tiny shapes and textures generated in this process, that allows me to experience the inexperienced things and perceive the unseen.
I was led to approaching a brand-new world. The various shapes of tiny creations in chemical reactions have an obvious connection with the nature world.
There is no end to discoveries that we can have if we seek them with our eyes open and in new perspectives. All these explorations are more than telling an answer.
From Yan LIANG
Just by numbers, Envisioning Chemistry (16 films, 27 min total length) is a big step forward from Beautiful Chemistry (8 films, 7 min total length).
We also strive to improve the quality of every film in Envisioning Chemistry. With Wenting ZHU, who majored in visual communication, exploring the artistic side of chemical reactions, my role is to expand the scope of chemical reactions covered in Envisioning Chemistry and to implement the latest technologies, such as high-res infrared thermal imaging, to capture the magic of the chemical reactions that cannot be seen by naked eyes.
Finally, I would like to thank the support and trust we got from Chinese Chemical Society.
