’The Tides Within Us’ and Inside Insight
Hands-on workshop on medical imaging, including an introduction on the artwork ’The Tides Within Us’ by artist Barnaby Steel from Marshmallow Laser Feast (MLF). ’The Tides Within Us’ is a series of stunning interactive screens that allow the audience to explore the human ecosystem. To create the artwork MLF partnered with the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Medicine MEVIS.
Within First Star Scholars UK, University of Winchester, we give insight for school students into the artwork and deepen the understanding of medical imaging. In the workshop "Inside Insight," they can engage hands-on online using their computers, gaining insights into medical issues, and experience the possibilities of software support in the diagnosis and therapy of diseases. The advantages of computer support in the analysis of image data and the close connection between physics, computer science, and mathematics and medicine become accessible.
