THE SOCIETY OF NANOBIOSENSING:
AN INTERACTIVE VIRTUAL MICROSCOPE
FOR MEDICAL NANOTECHNOLOGY

Dr Andrea Rassell 
In-Conversation with Dr Deirdre Feeney

The philosopher Alfred Nordmann suggests that nanotechnologies may be increasingly ‘unfathomable when we are asked to imagine their unimaginably intricate workings that lie beyond the reach of our senses.’

The installation The Society of NanoBioSensing responds to Nordmann's concern by creating a virtual microscope and playful interface that allows the visitor to have an embodied experience of medical nanotechnology.

Dr Andrea Rassell will discuss the creation of the installation, which is showing as part of Illuminate Adelaide’s City Lights program. The large scale projection combines hundreds of images collected over 4 months in residence with the Ian Potter NanoBioSensing Facility at RMIT University.

Illuminate Adelaide explores the union between future technology and creative industries and will completely reimagine the Adelaide CBD.

Presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre and Illuminate Adelaide, as part of the 2022 Illuminate Adelaide Program
