Experimental musicians Karen Schlimp, Jaap Blonk and Klaus Hollinetz take us along on a sonorous journey through the human skin this Friday, December 1, 2017. In a concert entitled “UNDER YOUR SKIN/Bodyterms” in Deep Space 8K, they’ll play on medical terminology, through scores made of microscope images, and with the full range of their instruments’ possibilities.
Yen Tzu Chang (TW) is the recipient of the residency STEAM imaging jointly hosted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing (MEVIS) and Ars Electronica. The Taiwanese media artist will thus have a unique opportunity to work closely together with the Institute’s research staff.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing (MEVIS) has announced an exciting artist-in-residency program that focuses on links between art and science. They’re also integrating pupils into this experiment.
During the last three decades we have witnessed the growing complexity of technology and a flood that is filling our hospitals today—functional imaging, full gene sequencing, automated laboratory medicine and much more. But the role and responsibility sharing in healthcare has remained almost unchanged despite almost complete digitization. In this Deep Space talk Professor Horst Hahn presents possible future role models and the benefits and dangers of the digital revolution.
Dr. Martin Haditsch, a specialist in tropical & travel medicine talks about his presentation together with Dr. Franz Fellner at Deep Space LIVE: Anatomy for Everybody – Travel Medicine on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 8 PM.
Because of the technical innovations in the Deep Space 8K, it is now possible to use highly complex programs. One is the Cinematic Rendering app for the presentation of photorealistic images of the human body in 3-D and jumbo-format dimensions.
It turns out that you can peer into a person’s heart after all! The latest visualizations by the Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing (MEVIS) make it possible to see what goes on in our blood vessels and understand what’s happening.
Cinematic Rendering takes 3-D depictions of the human body to the next level of image quality. This project, which was developed by Siemens Healthcare and is now being shown in Deep Space 8K, is a vivid example of how science too can benefit from artistic impetus.
In conjunction with the EU’s Sparks project, the Ars Electronica Futurelab is addressing an Open Call to artists with visions involving new technologies in the areas of health, medicine and wellbeing.
A very special highlight kicked off this international surgical congress: Operations being performed simultaneously at three ORs at Linz’s Krankenhaus der Barmherzigen Schwestern (Hospital of the Sisters of Mercy) were broadcast directly to the Ars Electronica Center.
Yesterday a large number of visitors attended the second part of the series “Deep Space LIVE: Anatomy for All”. We chatted with Dr. Franz A. Fellner and Horst Hörtner which exceptional 3D visualization of the human body they presented this time.
Modern imaging procedures used in the medical field today provide fascinating insights into what goes on inside a human being. Dr. Franz Fellner of Linz General Hospital recently talked to us about the possibilities created by visualizations in Deep Space.
Diabetes is a so-called disease of affluence or lifestyle disease. It can do catastrophic damage to the body if left untreated. The Ars Electronica Center recently installed a very informative exhibit about Ypsomed’s Omnipod, a compact insulin pump that makes everyday life a lot easier for diabetics. Thomas Jannke, the AEC’s vice-director of visitor services and one of the first Omnipod users in Austria, explains what this amazing device is capable of.
“Is it always the case that you are getting so thirsty?”, Julia asks while the brain computer interface is being removed together with its wiring from her head. The pupil has just successfully painted her first picture with the power of her mind only.
There’s a lot of things to learn from Neuroscience. Dr. Manuela Macedonia talks about the impact that findings from this field can have on a lot of other disciplines and why the knowledge transfer is not always easy. Macedonia will be having her last “Brain For Everybody” – Talk for 2012 on November 15 at 6:30 PM at the Ars Electronica Center, the topic being “Speech Disorders”.
Dr. Manuela Macedonia ist regelmäßig als Vortragende im Ars Electronica Center und ist verantwortlich für die Reihe “Gehirn für Alle”. Wie sie zu dem Thema gekommen ist, was in den nächsten Wochen und Monaten zu sehen sein wird, verrät sie im Interview.
