Photographic exhibition and conferences: Look and See, Sense and Live
The initiative combines informative elements on the research project SCREEN-DR with a photographic project materialised in a number of images and videos, together with several conferences under artistic and technological point of views.
The opening of the photographic exhibit is on 23 February at 4:00 pm at MIRA FORUM, in Porto.
Aurélio Campilho, coordinator of C-BER and Full Professor at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) and Renato Roque, photographer and trained as an engineer, are the coordinators of the set of events that make up this initiative that we're disclosing.
