Honorary President of Visa-Art 2014

November 7, 2013

Etienne Saint-Amant has the great privilege to accept the honorary presidency of the 22nd edition of Visa-Art.


" Ten years ago, I was amongst the artists of Visa-Art and it was a great platform for me: a beautiful meeting of the visual arts with literary arts. I met many poets, artists and passionates of culture. This visibility has definitely helped me to be known in the Eastern Townships. This year, the event will be under the theme of the fragment. In addition to being a favorite subject for me, this theme affects us all by its omnipresence. For the event, I will have the opportunity to introduce my new artworks under this theme. I hope to meet you there, on May 30, 2014! "

WINNER — Best representation of the human connectome — OHBM 2013

July 3, 2013

Etienne Saint-Amant, with the artwork Selfportrait II, is the winner of the Jury 1st prize for the best representation of the human connectome at Brain-Art competition of Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM), Seattle 2013.

About the image :

While I was finishing my studies in human brain imaging, I had the opportunity to share a little of my body for the science. I took an unusual examination called diffusion spectrum imaging in nuclear magnetic resonance. With the dataset (of my very own brain structure) and the help of my colleagues from the Sherbrooke Connectivity Imaging Laboratory (SCIL), we produce the highest resolution white matter tractography that we could. So the image, Selfportrait II is a medical image of my white matter network that I also modified artistically.

OHBM SEATTLE 2013
BRAIN-ART SHOW & COMPETITION

June 17, 2013

Etienne Saint-Amant is taking part in the Human Brain Mapping conference 2013, held in Washington State Convention Center, in Seattle, June 16-20.

Organization for Human Brain Mapping

The neurobureau is a non-profit organization that supports “open neuroscience” — embracing the ideas that data, methods, and ideas can be freely shared. We are mostly scientists working in the field of brain mapping, as well as artists and curators interested in the brain. Since 2011, we have tried to push the boundaries between art and neuroscience during the Human Brain Mapping (HBM) conference. The HBM is the largest scientific conference exclusively dedicated to the field of brain mapping, with close to 3000 scientists attending. We want to organize three events:

- a brain-art show, where established artists who work on the brain and the mind will display their work directly at the heart the conference. Some of the artists may attend to start collaborating with scientists.

- a brain-art competition, where scientists are invited to submit their most beautiful illustrations of the brain.

- a brain-art gala, where the winners of the brain-art competition are announced.
