The chosen title, The Stars Look So Different Tonight, can be understood as a metaphor for marvelling, the starting point of the human thirst for knowledge. The artist positions here have in common a subjective approach to fundamental questions of nature as well as being investigative regarding perceptual processes and visualization strategies. Their poetic and sensual appropriation of scientific pictorial language, enriched with fictitious or hyperrealist stagings and speculative laboratories, opens up a fresh look at the familiar. The sober, objective methodologies of natural science are contrasted with experimental, sometimes playful, approaches that recognise and accept the ambivalences and mysteries of the objects under investigation.
