Salvatore Iaconesi: Open-sourcing a cure for his cancer - By Alessandro Delfanti

 

Salvatore Iaconesi is an artist, interaction designer and hacker. He is the founder of the international network Art is Open Source, which works on the transformations brought about by ubiquitous digital technologies and networks. In 2012 he was a TED Fellow and is Eisenhower Fellow since 2013. With Oriana Persico, he teaches Interaction Design, Digital Design and Transmedia Narratives at La Sapienza University of Rome, ISIA Design Florence, Rome University of Fine Arts and IED Design institute.

 

In 2012, Iaconesi was diagnosed with brain cancer. He decided to hack and then publish his own medical data online and thus crowdsource his cancer, engaging people from all over the world to find a cure and to discover what it could mean to be cured in the information age. Through the website La Cura (The Cure), to this day he has received close to 900,000 messages from about 200,000 people.

 

Along with Alessandro Delfanti (Media@McGill Postdoctoral Fellow) and Patrick Dubé (SAT/CHU Sainte-Justine Living Lab), Iaconesi and Persico will be participating in Media@McGill’s panel on “Participatory Medicine,” Thursday, Feb. 13, at 5:30 p.m. in Leacock 232 (855 Sherbrooke Street West). The conference is free and open to the public. For more information, go here. The following is an interview Iaconesi did for the McGill Reporter.

BioAssemblyBot: One Step Closer to Bioprinting Organs - #3Dprint #innovation | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

One of the most interesting applications of 3D printing is bioprinting.


BAB and TSIM were unveiled by Advanced Solutions on 1st August 2014. Advanced Solutions is a private biotechnology company in Louisville and has been pushing for breakthroughs in biotechnology since its establishment in 1987.


As the idea of 3D bioprinting became popular in the first decade of 21st century, Advanced Solutions gave the task of designing a bioprinter to Dr. Stuart Williams and his colleagues. The result of their efforts was BioAssemblyTool (BAT), a very advanced 3D bioprinter, released in 2007.
