Science relies on images in many ways: not only visual material is part of the research process, but it is also used in the information for the public – in which case it is called science communication.

Even though these images pertain to science, whenever visual material is involved, it becomes domain of visual communication. For this reason, a cooperation is essential to maintain coherence with both subjects.

This project explores the interaction between science and visual communication in the design of information for the lay public. The outcome is an informative animated video on the topic of black holes, and it has been developed with the support of Marco Dall’Amico, who is a PhD in Astrophysics at Padova University.

During the process, two main questions have been explored:

What are the limits imposed by science in the development of a visual language for information? And how is it possible to visualize something that cannot be seen?
