This panel will bring together healthcare professionals with artists & researchers using technology meant for healing & pain management in their creative practice. Healthcare is becoming increasingly technological in both its implementation & delivery as we are becoming more connected daily. New advancements in technology are aiding in the healing process & allowing us to understand how healthcare works both as a science & as social experience. This panel attempts to answer the question of how art & design can & are helping in the healing process. What types of interventions are possible through technology to achieve wellness on a personal, shared, & international level? Using the Internet, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Digital Games, & other connected interfaces, this panel will explore the future of this fascinating field & how it will evolve in the next 20, 30, 40 or more years to come. This panel will transport audiences into new potentials for collaborative experiences using technology & art into the world of medicine & beyond.
Speakers include Sean Montgomery, an artist using Brain Wave Interaction with performers & audiences in his work; Holly Cohen, a previous TED speaker, & Program Manager of Assistive Technology/Driving Rehabilitation at NYU Rusk Rehabilitation; Heather Dewey-Hagborg, an artist using technology in her work to recreate the faces of people from their discarded DNA samples; & Matthew N. Bartels, the Chairman of the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, a regional medical provider in the Bronx & Lower Hudson Valley in New York State.
