The “epiMimesis: Epizone V” project is authored by Joanna Hoffmann from the University of the Arts in Poznan and EpiLab Team together with the Tech project RIVAS (3IT Fraunhofer HHI, R&D ICT) and supported by Producers.
It is an artistic team project referring to the perpetual human ambition to gain knowledge over ‘Big Data’ for tailoring a better future. Epimimesis evokes the notion of mimesis as a creative method of combining art, science, and technology for striving to create a new quality or orientation of mind, for stimulating imagination and reflection. Combining interdisciplinary scientific knowledge and expertise with creative visions, the artistic strategy of mimesis is used for the search of the personal human identity within the ever-changing data environment powered by merging biotech and digi-tech revolutions.
Prof. Bujnicki’s strong contribution as a Producer to this exceptional initiative, will be providing scientific data, scientific & technological advice and expertise necessary for the production of the said Artwork.
