    Visualisations in science and art
    Visual perception is a key process for human beings. Consequently, images play an important role in both science and art.

    In science, images are primary data or serve as visualisations that help to make sense of information. In research, images are accordingly found at the beginning and end of a process of recognition. Images as works of art can be understood as the culmination of creative activity but can equally serve as the inspiration at the beginning of a creative process.

    Virgil Widrich is appointed the artistic director of the exhibition "90 Years of the Salzburg Festival" held from 17 June to 26 October 2010 in Salzburg Museum. The centrepiece is a multimedia "meta-exhibition", a compilation of performances from the most important productions of the last nine decades rearranged to create a programme that never actually existed in this form. The stage for this production is an abstract model that represents and reproduces the Festival venues in keeping with Max Reinhardt's motto, "The city as a stage".
