The evening begins with a keynote address from world-renowned biomedical animator Drew Berry, whose work has been exhibited at leading international museums (e.g., Guggenheim, MOMA, and the Royal Institution of Great Britain) and won many awards (including an Emmy and a BAFTA). Next, the evening features the Sydney premiere of two biomedical animations from local artists Christopher Hammang and Kate Patterson - followed by finalists in the VizbiPlus Challenge, showcasing new artwork inspired by these animations. Finally, if your own work bridges art and science, we want to hear from you. Submit an image and a short description of your work, and you could give a 30-second lightning-talk as part of the event.Data61

About Drew Berry

Drew Berry is a biologist-animator whose scientifically accurate and aesthetically rich visualisations reveal cellular and molecular processes for a wide range of audiences. Trained as a cell biologist and microscopist Drew brings a rigorous scientific approach to each project, immersing himself in relevant research to ensure current data are represented. Drew received B.Sc. (1993) and M.Sc. (1995) degrees from the University of Melbourne. Since 1995, he has been a biomedical animator at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. His animations have exhibited at venues such as the Guggenheim Museum, MoMA, the Royal Institute of Great Britain and the University of Geneva. In 2010 he received a MacArthur Fellowship "Genius Award". He collaborated with the musician Björk for the 2011 album Biophilia for which he directed the music video Hollow, which was also used in the Hollow app. In 2015 he created the Illuminarium: a six-storey revolving LED-light installation that comes to life at dusk and in the early morning hours with images and data from the frontier of medical research.
