Vanitas - Art on Science 2014

Recently EPFL, the Polytechnic Federal School of Lausanne invited us to participate in the “Art on Science” public exhibition, focused on optical illusions. A great opportunity for a reflection on science and human ambition.This is our tribute to Vanitas, a widely depicted theme in the history of arts. Alongside symbols of worldly ambition, scientific accomplishments, and vanity, we find allegories of the frail and transient nature of our existence. Far from being a morbid or bleak rebuke, it is an invitation to treasure in humbleness every instant of our precious lives.
