Martina Fröschl, MSc, studied media technique & media design and graduated with a thesis about how CGI relate to the generated factual reality of documentary and mockumentary films. The depiction of realities and biological phenomena has ever since driven her creations. She contributed to various documentary and fictional productions for TV and cinema as visual effects and CGI artist.
She presented at different occasions, for instance: Science Visualization in TV and Film for Better Understanding of Science – Bangkok 2010, FMX Conference – Stuttgart 2013, Mite Colloquium – Graz 2013, Blender Conference – Amsterdam 2016, LASER UCLA – Los Angeles 2016, CAx – Berlin 2017, Fluid Visualisation and Sound Matters: Bridging Art, Science, and Visualisation Symposium – Vienna 2017, On|Off 100101010 Symposium – Singapure 2017, SIGGRAPH 2018 Vancouver, and The Paseo Project Taos – NM, USA 2018.
Within a core group of volunteers, she organized the conference PIXELvienna – Annual Conference on Computer Graphics & Animation from 2008 – 2018. Her recent computer animations are based on scientific imaging data like µCT, MRI, SEM and light microscopy in collaboration with imaging experts and biologists. Currently, she is Senior Researcher at the Science Visualization Lab Angewandte at the department of Digital Art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
