Learn about Astrobiology!
Astrobiology is a science where the knowledge of astronomy, planetary science, biology, biochemistry and geology is put together to try to answer a question that has been haunting humanity for a long time: are we alone in the Universe? The astronomer's role in this collaborative project consists in discovering new exoplanets to identify the ones that could potentially host life.
Microfiches is the encyclopedic project where art encounters knowledge.
Each collection is comprised of 10 to 15 cards presenting key elements of a subject. The texts are written by a renowned specialist and visually interpreted by an artist. This textual and visual content is printed on cards and declined on a variety of other printed and digital medium.
