  • Fraunhofer MEVIS presents as a research partner, jointly with Marshmallow Laser Feast (MLF), and York Mediale 'The Tides Within Us' at SIGGRAPH Asia 2021 Art Galleries. The artwork is an ongoing exploration into the world beyond the limits of our senses at the intersection of art, science, and technology; where does the living body begin, and where does it end? By peering under our skin we reveal the tidal rhythms of oxygen flowing through the branching ecosystem of the human body. The aim is to challenge notions of boundaries between us human beings and our environment.
