RHINOSPIDER An Operation in Three Acts

The Rhinospider is a patented invention that optimizes navigation in the area of the head for complex surgery. In a close cooperation between the Art University Linz, the Medical University Innsbruck, the Las Gafas film team, the Ars Electronica Center Linz and the Anton Bruckner Private University, this patent is presented in a film. Scientific insights are coupled with a collaborative, artistic process. The result is an experimental dance performance film, which illustrates this invention in an unusual way.
