The project adds interdisciplinary methods and new aesthetic approaches to STEM teaching by connecting digital medicine to education and arts to foster the engagement with and ownership of future technology. It includes encounters that bring together the artists, Fraunhofer MEVIS scientists, and pupils from Bremen and Linz and students from NTU Singapore in cooperation with Fraunhofer Talent School. Following the residency, the resulting work of art will be featured at the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz in September 2020.
Being able to move successfully between a variety of disciplines is a crucial competence in future education and innovation. The partners aim to strengthen multidisciplinary talents, encourage students to engage with art, science, and technology to gain new skills to expand their own work practices and ways of expression and thus explore educational models of the future. Hands-on workshops are a core element of this inquiry of the two seemingly disparate disciplines of digital medicine and art. These include both fundamental knowledge and free creative exploration to understand a subject thoroughly. We research how STEM and the arts cross-pollinate within the socially relevant context of digital medicine.
