The route begins with the representation of a visible reality, which poses a reflection on the use of images as, not only through our senses. It continues with the exhibition of some instruments (microscopes, enlargers, projectors ...) with which the man wanted to overcome the limitations imposed by their own bodies, to know and also represent images of what is Invisible to the naked eye. Photographic equipment in use in laboratories of the Zoological Station (by the diver for the first Polaroid cameras and SLR) then bring the invention of photography, by which man was able to capture an image MATERIAL; while exposure of film tools (dryers films, cameras, projectors), remind us how we got to represent even the movement. The final part of the exhibition propels us towards a digital image that, in addition to its huge production potential, transmission and sharing, confronts us with the search for new ways and means with which to maintain ...
