Research Art Science Exhibition (RASE)-VR

The campus community was invited to attend the second annual Research Art-Science Exhibition in the Digital Media Lab (DML). About 40 students, mostly from various STEM backgrounds, presented artistic representations of their research activities they created while participating in the media lab’s drive to support their new skills such a networking, sharing ideas, results and practicing presentations with peers.

The STEM students’ gallery images depicted the beauty of such materials as meta-lenses for manipulating light, a model of the human gut that includes a realistic mucus layer to enhance microbiome studies and a pyrite-graphite rock mixture from the Adirondack Mountains. This year’s art event also offered visitors a chance to walk through a digital version of last year’s Research Art-Science Exhibition using virtual reality (VR), produced by Dr. Steve Acquah.
