About

Dr. Martina Fröschl studied media technique & media design and wrote her thesis about computer-animated scientific visualizations of tomographic scanned microscopic organic entities. 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 CG-artist.
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 and digital artist at the Science Visualization Lab Angewandte at the Department of Digital Art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
