Prof. Manfred P. Kage (1935-2019) was a renowned artist, science photographer, filmmaker, and inventor. Cited as one of the most important pioneers of multimedia and video art worldwide. Kage was a visionary and preeminent figure in microphotography since 1957, who also conceived and coined the terms "Science Art" and "Modern Science Art". To visually uncover the aesthetics of the tiniest micro-worlds and to bring them to the viewers with innovative techniques had always been Manfred P. Kage's artistically challenging task. With "Science Art" Kage achieved an aesthetic of its own dimension and manifested with this vision his interpretation of the synthesis of science and art.
At the age of eight, Manfred P. Kage looked for the first time through a microscope which changed his life.
"The fact that things are not what they appear was an enlightenment for me then, it was like opening the door to a mysterious world, a universe that can explore step by step and gain insights."
