Inside Motion. The Fourth Dimension of Science


Exhibition at Pharmaziemuseum Basel, Totengässlein 3, 4051 Basel

April 27– June 1 2019

For centuries, philosophers and scientists longed to see what a living human body looks like from the inside. Today, with the help of advanced imaging methods, researchers of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at University of Basel are making this possible with technologies like virtual and augmented reality for diagnosis, surgery planning, patient communication and education. The exhibition “Inside Motion. The Fourth Dimension of Medicine” invites visitors to change place with surgeons inside a virtual operation theatre and to learn about organ motion, real time tracking and new treatment measures. The exhibition, generously funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, is designed in cooperation with media artists and designers of the Academy of Art and Design Basel.
