Seminar: Making Science Beautiful - a joint event with Vivid Idea

David Goodsell's visualisation of a virusThis signature Vivid Ideas event explores how science inspires art — and how art advances science — through the amazing work of David Goodsell (La Jolla, USA), as well as three new biomedical animations his work has inspired.

David's world-renowned watercolors of cells and proteins open up scope for imagination and exploration in biomedical research, a theme continued in his research, which focuses on using computer graphics and simulation to understand the molecular machinery involved in living processes.

Following David's talk, Emmy winner Drew Berry from Melbourne will show how his animation style has been influenced by David's work, and he will present the Sydney premiere of three new biomedical animations created by three apprentices he has been training. The main event concludes with a presentation of the finalists in the VizbiPlus Challenge, featuring a range of creative work inspired by these three animations.

Places are limited book early to ensure you experience this unique event exploring the intersection of creativity and scientific discovery.
