Martin Meyer / Sinsynplus

After his talk, Martin will immediately change spaces and head back to zeitraum.exit to prepare his performance project , that will be performed at 10pm! Will will join them after our session!

About Martin Meyer

Martin Mayer is a visual artist and VJ based in Munich, working under the alias sinsynplus since 2001. He studied media art at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts and is co-founder of the multimedia art duo mayer+empl. In this multimedia art duo Martin Mayer and Quirin Empl are specialized in interior and exterior 3D video mapping – an art form that uses architecture, shape and conditions of the room to project moving images, light or graphics on abstract surfaces, and thus creating entirely new atmospheric spaces.

Agnieszka “Bronka” Bronowska / Mixing art and science – enthalpy, entropy, visual narration, and dance

In my talk I will briefly introduce the concepts, data sources, and tools, which can be used by visual artists in their work. I will focus on the need for motion graphics, especially in depicting the phenomena which involve dynamic components hence the entropic terms (e.g. drug-receptor interactions, rational drug design). Finally, I will ask for ideas and feedback from the audience about the future directions in visualising the dynamic and multi-scale data.

About Agnieszka “Bronka” Bronowska

Life sciences and visual arts can fuel each other and be – one for another one – the sources of inspiration. Good visualization is pivotal for biological and chemical sciences – to illustrate the key concepts, to transmit information, and to bring new ideas along. Some concepts, like macromolecular flexibility, protein ensembles, or enthapy- entropy compensation, which are often difficult to explain, can be portrayed by dance and video art in a form that is readily accessible to non-scientists. This is of a crucial importance for explaining the concepts to children or otherwise popularising life sciences. ! This also goes the other way round. Science itself can be the source of inspiration for the art. Protein dynamics and ligand-protein interactions can serve as a canvas for story-telling, and the concept of periodic boundary conditions (PBC) used in molecular simulations can be exploited as a parallel to the concept of social roles, etc etc. Last but not least, structural biology, structure-based molecular design, and molecular modelling use tools which can also be used by visual artists for other purposes.
