A project developed by Mick Lorusso in conversation and collaboration with UCLA Art|Sci Collective, Alia Ghoneum, Dr. James Gimzewski, Dr. Dean Ho, Clarissa Ribeiro, Dr. Benjamín Domínguez and Dr. Yolanda Olvera (UNAM, Mexico), friends and family.

Researchers at UCLA, including Dr. Dean Ho and Jim Gimzewski, have shown that diamonds small enough to enter living cells, nanodiamonds, could be instrumental in curing cancer, improving the immune system of the elderly, and helping to heal wounds after surgery. Extending scientific research into a realm of imagination and belief, the exhibit “Museum of Endoluminosity” also suggests imagery that people might use for visualization during physical illness and psychological distress.

LASER presenters include featured artist Mick Lorusso; CEO and President of OmniPathology Solutions Mohammed Kamal; artist and UCLA Design|Media Arts Professor Rebeca Mendez; artist Pam Posey; and graphic designer and professor of Typography at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver Sandra Hoffmann.

Event is FREE and open to the public.
