In Science Visualization Lab Angewandte at Digital Arts department of University of Applied Arts Vienna, we have a long tradition
of telling facts about nature. In producing internationally successful documentaries, we created some well-received narrational
pieces. Our recent activities shifted more to scientific visualizations for "art and science" projects. Different approaches
to conveying knowledge are key in the lab's latest visualizations driven by scientific data. The projects give examples to
talk about the role of visualizations in the sciences and their relation to reality. Scientific visualizations and their narrational
styles shape our experiences of the realm of scientific findings and therefore the way we think about and perceive our surroundings.
The abbreviation CRISPR/Cas9 stands for a relatively new method to change sequences in the genome. The manipulation can be
done precisely, like it was unimaginable just a few years ago. In the world of genetic engineering, it is a revolution whose
impact on human existence yet cannot be estimated. Our animation of the process was part of the interactive full-dome installation
in the Future Room section of the exhibition "ÄSTHETIK DER VERÄNDERUNG" in the Museum of Applied Arts Vienna. This exhibition
was dedicated to the future of art, education, and society and showed a scientific visualization of this technology. The example
should be used to talk about the creation process of scientific visualizations and their use of communicating scientific narratives.
