Designing Truth is a portrait of biologist and computer scientist Ansgar Philippsen, a visualization software development specialist in the in the area of biochemistry. It examines how scientific images come about, against which background they can be interpreted, and what effect the visualization of knowledge has on the general concepts of body, nature and society.
