Missing pictures – Ki – generates history

EWMD Society Lunchtalk 23rd May 2024 – 12-1 PM – (will be recorded and presented later on this page)

Step into the world of „Missed Images: Bringing Women in Science to Light,“ a ground-breaking exhibition now specially available digitally to members of the EWMD Society and its guests. In response to a call from the Schader Foundation and the Darmstadt Science City Round Table, this project aims to highlight the often overlooked contributions of women in science. We are very pleased that Dr. Stella Lorenz and the photographer Gesine Born will give us a virtual tour of the exhibition in Darmstadt and will explain the potential impact of this work on society. The Schader Foundation investigates cross-cutting issues of social change in a practical way. The projects are always carried out in cooperation with partners from different fields.

Led by Gesine Born, a distinguished photographer based in Berlin and Head of BilderInstitut (Image Institute) for the responsible use of images in science communication, this initiative seeks to bridge the gap between past and present, unveiling the hidden stories of remarkable women who have shaped scientific history.

Through a fusion of art and technology, old photographs are animated using artificial intelligence, breathing new life into these images and revealing the brilliance, fascination, and character of the women they portray. Witness the magic as these photorealistic images bring to light the achievements of women across various scientific disciplines, from physics and mathematics to chemistry, biology, and astronomy.

Among the featured women are pioneers like Cécile Vogt, a remarkable scientist who was nominated for the Nobel Prize 13 times but tragically never received the recognition she deserved. Similarly, Lise Meitner, a physicist known for her groundbreaking research on nuclear fission, serves as an inspiration for future generations of scientists.

The exhibition not only showcases the achievements of these extraordinary women but also sheds light on the challenges they faced, including the pervasive Matilda effect, which often led to their contributions being ignored or attributed to their male counterparts.

As you explore the online exhibition, you’ll have the opportunity to delve deeper into the technology behind the project, with transparent insights into the artificial visualisation process. Additionally, all accompanying texts are narrated by the AI-generated voice of Lise Meitner, ensuring barrier-free access to information.

Join us on this journey of discovery and empowerment as we make women in science visible, celebrated, and revered. Together, let’s rewrite the narrative of scientific history and inspire future generations to reach for the stars.
