The Science Visualization Lab of the University of Applied Arts Vienna has been treading new paths for many years to make science tangible and visible. For this purpose, the design tools of computer animation, documentary film and immersive experiences are used. The projects shown are LIFE, which deals with the effects of plastic and noise pollution on plankton, CRISPR/Cas9-NHEJ: ACTION IN THE NUCLEUS, which deals with genetic manipulation and VIRUS DICE, which presents the SARS-CoV-2 virus and our existence as a function of relationships with different probabilities.
Alfred Vendl is professor emeritus and head of the Science Visualization Lab at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. He is a chemist and was as cameraman, screenwriter, director, producer and presenter on more than 200 main evening documentaries.
Martina R. Fröschl works as a senior scientist at the Science Visualization Lab. She is visual effects and computer animation artist and head of the PIXELvienna society and part of the NOISE AQUARIUM Collective at the Art|Sci Center UCLA.
