Dr. Greenberg reveals the dramatic beauty of grains of sand under the microscope, including images of moon sand brought to Earth by NASA during the Apollo Missions. His presentation is studded with astounding images of individual grains of sand magnified hundreds of times. When we walk along a beach we are strolling on thousands of years of geological and biological history. Each grain of sand is unique, and each has a story to tell. Dr. Greenberg exposes this amazing hidden world in a fascinating visual presentation. It is a journey into the wondrous landscape of things we do not see with our naked eye.

Dr. Greenberg takes us on a journey into the world of flowering plants from the insect’s point of view. Stunningly beautiful stamina, pistils and petals evolved over millions of years to lure bugs with gorgeous visuals, wonderful smells, and sweet tastes. Symbiosis with insects has allowed flowering plants to spread to every corner of the world. They have co-evolved over time to strengthen their mutually beneficial bonds. It was a sexual revolution between species rather than within species. Dr. Greenberg shows us the magnificence of flowering plants with clarity and depth never seen before. All of us love to behold the awesome beauty of flowers; and now for the first time, an entirely new dimension of appreciation is offered.

Although art and science seem poles apart, both artists and scientists passionately strive to communicate a deeper understanding of nature and the human condition. This fascinating presentation highlights the works of great individuals throughout history who have creatively combined art with science. The legacy of the Renaissance marked the convergence of art and science, and we are now entering a new age where these same ideals offer us an exciting way to see the modern world.
