Winning project 1: Metabolische Landschaft (Metabolic landscape)

Thomas Feuerstein’s proposal connects, at both a literal and metaphorical level, the research topics addressed at the various medical centres of the campus with the metabolic processes that are found in the body’s cells and at the same time represent artistic development. This 30m-long panorama mural will be realised in the campus canteen. It combines a real topographic map with a diagram of the metabolic pathways in the human body. In front of these juxtaposed images are four screens that call to mind the speech bubbles found in WhatsApp messages or comics and that display associative dialogues at short intervals. These dialogues are generated by a software application that automatically scans the current publications of the research centres on campus and translates them into a simple language structure.
