Find out more about the value of science, art, transdisciplinary experiences and the artwork In Vivo in this interview with the artists Ernest Wu and Jake Tan, my colleague Sabrina Haase and me.

The residency program STEAM Imaging I designed, which is jointly hosted by Fraunhofer MEVIS, and Ars Electronica, invites artists to create a work, which draws its inspiration from scientific findings and is a critical commentary, socially-oriented - a new exploration and approach to the applied sciences. Part of the residency is a STEAM workshop for pupils and students, jointly created by the artists and scientists, which is an invitation to the students to participate in this exploration.

Mentoring Jake Tan and Ernest Wu, who are supervised by Assoc. Prof. Ina Conradi from the School of Art, Design, and Media at Nanyang Technological University Singapore is intriguing. It is a great pleasure to lead this residency program for Fraunhofer MEVIS.
