The workshop will look into the intersection of contemporary biology, anatomy, art and technology. In four days participants of the seminar will discuss the scientific and historical context of Pascale Pollier-Green's works.

The program of the workshop includes screenings of Fabrica Vitae and The Seat of Intuition, discussions on the nature of human consciousness and the abilities of the body, lectures on Otto Schumann and Nikola Tesla, a demonstration of alternative ways of making a Schumann resonator, and work on the participants' own art projects.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Belgium-born Pascale Pollier-Green studied fine art at the Saint Luke Art School in Ghent, and later continued her education at the Medical Artists' Association in London.

Further exploring human anatomy, I aim to show and explain how the human body is an incredibly complex vibration of consciousness, and how death is the absence of vibrations.'
