BIOMAB is raising funds for the making of the film “Fabrica Vitae”, reflecting on the Fabric of Life” on Kickstarter.
In 2014, five hundred years after the birth of Andreas Vesalius, the founder of modern anatomy, BIOMAB proposes to create a film that will show how the legacy of Vesalius is still challenging new generations of artists and scientists to create groundbreaking work.
A group of contemporary, brilliant scientists and innovative artists will be questioned about their work and what they perceive the future of “humanity and the physical human body” to be. It will be fascinating to record their unique visions of man’s mortality, decay and death.
The film will be shown during the Vesalius conference at Zakynthos Greece.
