Essential glucose supplies are possible through the GLUT1 transport protein directly into the brain. In order to give the topic a visual form of expression, the presented computer animation was created by the Science Visualization Lab of the University of Applied Arts Vienna in collaboration with an Austrian research team dealing with the “sugar dilemma”. The animation shows metaphorically how “the light of thought” of every human depends on the glucose molecule.
An unbelievable diversity and density of life is hidden in the unseen micro plankton world. Most of the worldwide oxygen is produced by photosynthetic plankton. Microplastic, underwater noise and climate change are damaging plankton and thereby life on Earth.
The research project C~ART consisted of workshops, called
Kunst~werk~statt or Klima~taten~drang. The workshops
were interdisciplinary spaces in which scientists and artists with an
interest in climate change topics met productively.
Noise Aquarium utilizes 3D-scans of plankton obtained with
unique scientific imaging techniques and immerses the audience in the 3D
‘aquarium’ of diverse plankton organisms. Participants should try to
balance the ecosystem putting both literally and metaphorically weight
on the plankton population of the world. The project consists of various
videos, installation setups, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
The interdisciplinary collaborative project uses data from the
worldwide Protein Data Bank to create an audio-visual presentation in an
interactive dome setup, a stereoscopic video and a regular 2D video. Since the topic is significant for the future of
humanity, immersive experiences should be considered to convey tacit
knowledge of gene-editing processes to make them approachable for the
The animation shows the first time one organism feeds on another to gain energy - it marks an important point in the fields of evolution, biology and philosophy. The 3D models of the Amoeba and the Paramecium are based on scanning data and references of real organisms.
