The College of Design has teamed up with the College of Sciences to develop and exhibition for the Leading Strand: Invisible Worlds, which helps innovate new ways to communicate complex scientific information.

Invisible Worlds brings the unseen into focus through illuminating science-based works of art. The exhibition unveils the results of a collaboration between NC State University scientists and designers and The Leading Strand, an organization that uses design to shine a light on breakthroughs happening in science.

Six groups of collaborators from NC State’s College of Sciences and College of Design teamed up to create stunning visual and interactive designs to help the public:

  • Step into the furry shoes of a little-known aye-aye lemur;
  • Manipulate the speed of physical phenomena;
  • Feel the intricate networks of soft condensed matter;
  • Better understand optimized cancer therapy;
  • Experience the mysteries of dark matter;
  • Build and test synthetic antibiotics.


TIME: 6 TO 9 P.M.

LOCATION: Transfer Co. Food Hall, 500 E. Davie Street, Raleigh, NC  27601

EXHIBITION OPEN THROUGHOUT JUNE: Thursdays through Saturdays from noon until 6 p.m.
