The story behind the artwork

This artwork aims to invite the whole Heidelberg city to get involved with the night of science. The town is depicted in a boiling flask (1), being the iconic landscape elements replaced by scientific concepts and objects easily identifiable by the general public. Sitting on the flask is a young person (2) in a relaxed position, enjoying the night of science and bringing out the friendly, fresh and dynamic character of the event. The bar chart represents the Heidelberg castle (3) and next to it there’s a simple interpretation of EMBL’s Advanced Training Centre building (4), topped by a benzene ring with the same shape as EMBL’s hexagonal logo and a recognisable shape of chemistry (5). On the right, two upside-down funnels picture Heidelberg’s mountains (6) and uniting the two margins of the river, there’s a DNA chain, indicating the city old bridge (7). Below, a water molecule represents the river (8), and the Fibonacci spiral (9) illustrates both the mathematical concept and the shape of a snail. The elements that place the event at night time are the stars constellations (10) and the planet (11) in the sky, as well as the indigo colour that unifies the whole artwork.
