Art piece at The University Medical Center Groningen






Studio Lau had the honour to make an art piece for the Wenckebach Institute in the University Medical Center Groningen.
Karel Frederik Wenckebach a professor of medicine at the University of Groningen. He is primarily remembered for his work in cardiology. In 1899 he provided a description of irregular pulses due to partial blockage of atrioventricular conduction, creating a progressive lengthening of conduction time in cardiac tissue.
To remember and honour him Studio Lau made a wooden 'pixel portrait' of Wenckebach with 3 different layers for a 3D effect. When entering the building, you can recognise the professor in the portrait. When you come closer you will get to see a more abstract art piece.
