Following on, finalists of the VizbiPlus Challenge 2016 will present their artwork inspired by science. After crowning the winner of this year’s challenge, see the premiere of two new biomedical animations from Australia's VizbiPlus Project. Next, selected audience members, whose work bridges art and science, will present lighting talks.
