30sep09:0017:00Sci-Vi Conference 2022SYMBIOSIS - Imagination and visualization as interdisciplinary field of exploration

Event Details

The Sci-Vi Conference focuses on visualization and animation in science dissemination, this year under the headline “SYMBIOSIS-Imagination and visualization as an interdisciplinary field of exploration ”Sci-Vi is an initiative at The AnimationWorkshop/VIA UC seeking to explore and unfold visual science dissemination as a field. The Sci-Vi Conference facilitates knowledge exchange and networking between researchers in different fields and visual storytellers.

This year’s Sci-Vi conference will focus on how to imagine and visualize in interdisciplinary fields. Tobe resilient as human beings, we must be able to imagine new clever futures in order to keep up with the movement of life and to move life ourselves. This applies not least to researchers who move to unknown lands to investigate what we do not yet know. Throughout the ages, researchers have worked closely with visual storytellers and artists, both to enhance their imagination, and to enhance their communication and dissemination of their findings and theses to the public and investors. At this year’s sci-vi conference, we will continue that tradition of bridge-building between researchers and visual storytellers when we share experiences with these interdisciplinary collaborations. We develop our future in symbiosis, and to be resilient as human beings, to see potential, get visions, and overcome the change in any way, we must build bridges between fields of knowledge, and share our stories.

Sci-Vi is supported by Vision Denmark and the Ministry of Higher Education and Science
