AiR - Art in Research

AiR - Art in Research

Paris - France

Presentation
AiR - Art in Research is the first art gallery devoted to scientific photography. AiR defines itself as a revealer of a radical, fundamental beauty, hidden in our research laboratories. Its singularity is also expressed in its commitment, advocating a conscious art — part of its revenue actually finances the research projects behind each of the photographs.

Some of the researchers we support really step into artists’ shoes, while others simply capture instants of beauty reminiscent of the fragile and delicate harmony of nature. Sometimes by revealing the invisible, and other times by playing with the scales of observation, our photographs are at the same time surrounded by mystery and witnesses to an undeniable truth.

Holding a PhD in physical sciences and passionate about photography, Alexandre Darmon creates AiR - Art in Research in 2017 and now devotes all his energy to promoting scientific research through visual arts.

“Science, like art, results from a subtle balance between emotion and reason, regularities and surprises, light and shadows.”
Jean-Philippe Bouchaud, Académie des Sciences
