What was the inspiration behind your artwork?

I saw a picture of a isopod under UV light and was amazed about the looks. So I decided to make a UV experiment, too.

What do you see as the similarity between science and art? Why is science-art important in today's society?

Vision and especially colour vision is biochemistry and therefore science. Science is beautiful, colourful and full of different forms.

We are shaped by visual stimuli. When we combine science and art, people get curious and perceive the scientific aspect of an artwork.
