At today's SILBERSALZ Institute Inspiration Session, I had the pleasure of giving a presentation on "Making Sense: Purpose and Impact of Integrating Science, Art, and Technology" and sharing my experiences! Very impressive and inspiring to learn about other ambitious #science, #art & #media collaborations and to get more insights into the training program for scientists who want to break into the world of science communication. With Mark Atkin, Anil Seth Irini, Mirena Papadim
Workshop: ”Digital Transformation and Artificial Intelligence in Medicine - (not) a Topic for Fictional Stories?,” designed and realized for Fraunhofer MEVIS in cooperation with Foundation for MINT-Entertainment-Education-Excellence (MINTEE). Talk: The potential of different formats in science communication and the contribution of science meets fiction.

On the 5th of June, Yen Tzu Chang will perform WHOSE SCALPEL, the artistic outcome of the residency ”STEAM Imaging.” The STEAM-team and prominent keynote speakers Horst Hahn and Gerfried Stocker looking forward to discussing the topic complexity in medicine and arts with the guests. Gerfried Stocker, Alexander Köhn, Yen Tzu Chang, Bianka Hofmann, Sabrina Haase Copyright: Fraunhofer IuK-Verbund WHOSE SCALPEL addresses the future of the human-machine relationship in surgery. Th
Great pleasure being back in the Deep Space 8K at Ars Electronica Center, Linz, Austria and see our new produced short movie for the first time in this 3D space! We had the toughest test audience: primary school children - it was great fun! The film shows how deep neural networks contribute to the evaluation of medical data and how this also changes the role of physicians and patients. In the future, doctors will compare their patients' medical images and treatment informatio
Design and realization of a workshop and talk: "Flesh and Voxel: Making Sense of Medical Images | STEM TO STEAM." Talk about the potential of connecting scientific expertise and artistic creativity to mold the future. With the pilot artist-in-residence project called STEAM Imaging, I designed for Fraunhofer MEVIS, the scientific disciplines were departed beyond knowledge silos, and not only an artistic approach but also school students were integrated. I see involving the you
Delighted to give a workshop with the mathematician Sabrina Haase at the intersection of art, science, technology, media, and entertainment at the Raw Science Film Festival.
We exhibited the steps of our journey from STEM to STEAM workshops and provided a demo of ”Inside Insight,” an interactive web tool for a practical introduction into creative mathematics, physics, and computer science, with a focus on enhancing medical data artistically. We are preparing ”Inside Insight
For the short-movie Beauty of Blood Flow Analysis, Raw Science Film Festival, California, January 2018. I received the award with my colleagues Alexander Köhn and Mathias Neugebauer. This special 2017 vortex half-dome edit is based on the longer 3D stereoscopic immersive installation Virtual Journey Through the Heart which I produced for the Deep Space 8K, Ars Electronica Science Center. It shows the dynamic reconstruction of the blood flow of a healthy human heart. New imagi
This workshop was an opportunity to bring together scholars and practitioners to jointly discuss and reflect on contents, approaches and methodologies that draw the link between synthetic biology and artistic research and how those can synergically interact by mutually interrogating and reconsidering their methodologies and modes of operation in an Artist in Residence program like KLAS. In this workshop they were particularly interested in discussions and perspectives that ex
Dialog-oriented Sci-Comm: From "STEAM Imaging" to "Whose Scalpel" - An Artist-in-Residency including pupils - conclusion of my talk. From the perspective of the scientific organization. Scientists can contribute to developing utopias neither dystopias nor promises of technological salvation. Scientific organizations could host cross-disciplinary, intergenerational platforms to deal with the impact of new technologies at an early stage. STEAM Imaging, Fraunhofer MEVIS' residen

The premiere of Yen Tzu Changs performance WHOSE SCALPEL at the Ars Electronica Festival 2017. The installation is the artistic outcome of the artist-in-residency project STEAM Imaging, which I designed, lead and realized with the mathematician Sabrina Haase for Fraunhofer MEVIS. YEN TZU CHANG on WHOSE SCALPEL: "WHOSE SCALPEL" is a sound performance combined with visual and 3D printed installation, realized with an application framework for medical image processing. Mixing se
STEAM Imaging: A Pupils’ Workshop Experiment in Computer Science, Physics, and Sound Art Published in SCIART MAGAZINE Special Topics August 2017: STEAM, 1. August 2017 By Bianka Hofmann, Sabrina Haase, and David Black, Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing MEVIS Alongside Taiwanese media artist Yen Tzu Chang, Fraunhofer MEVIS scientists Sabrina Haase and Bianka Hofmann designed a creative workshop for pupils in the field of computer-assisted medicine and sound art
The independent evaluation results of the workshops with pupils in the course of the artist-in-residency program STEAM imaging were published.
Together with mathematician Sabrina Haase and artist Yen Tzu Chang I set up the workshop for pupils in Bremen and Linz to explore medical imaging technologies and sound art in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Talent School Bremen and the Ars Electronica in Linz.
The workshops in Bremen and Linz were evaluated by the external scien
With the mathematician Sabrina Haase I realized an interactive two day workshop alongside Taiwanese media artist Yen Tzu Chang for pupils in the field of computer-assisted medicine and sound art within the STEAM Imaging artist-in-residency program. The first workshop took place at the Fraunhofer MEVIS Institute at the Technology Park in Bremen.

Mentoring the artist Yen Tzu Chang from March to September 2017. Yen Tzu Chang was the recipient of the residency STEAM imaging which I designed and led with Sabrina Haase. The residency was jointly hosted by Fraunhofer MEVIS and Ars Electronica. It connected computer-assisted medicine with education and art.
The Taiwanese media artist, whose previous works have included experimental sound performances and who specializes in creating customized electronic instruments, had a
I presented the artist-in-residency program ”STEAM Imaging” as part of the SciCom activities at Fraunhofer MEVIS. Why and how did we realize it?
Together with Claudia Schnugg, we discussed the concept paper of MPI's announcement of an artist as a researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics and elaborated evaluation criteria for this new residency program based on other Artist in Residence programs. #workshop #artistinresidency #STEAM #sciart #artsci
