Three graces

It was our pleasure to have Anna DumitriuKatja Mayer, and Gordana Novakovic visit our lab, to tell us about the work they are doing at the interface of art and science, as a preview of their presentations at the Subtle Technologies Festival.

Anna told us about some of the work going on at her Institute of Unnecessary Research, notably her efforts to communicate with soil bacteria around the world. Katja provided some history and perspectives on the visualization of networks -- a word, she tells us, that has its origins in the Renaissance studies of blood vessels.  Gordana talked about her Fugue, an installation that serves as an inspiration for multisensory explorations of complex scientific data.
