Feral Experimental Workshop: The Role of the Designer in Working with Scientific Data
- When 22 Aug - 22 Aug 2014
Cnr Oxford St & Greens Rd, Paddington
As artists and designers, what model of working should we adopt when visualising clinical data?
Join a workshop discussing the exploratory research carried out by Dr John McGhee during his residency in a British clinical radiology department.
The residency invited the designer to visualise Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data and develop a 3D communication tool for use with patients with vascular disease.
The designer took a completely new approach, developing and exploring an alternative that returns poetics to the human anatomy.
This workshop explores the concept of designer as a critical friend, rather than translator of data. This discussion focuses on the value of critical interaction when working in the clinical or scientific context.
Conducted by John McGhee.
