Collaboration puts Wyss Center neurotechnology in the spotlight
The Wyss Center is working with Swiss photographer and artist Matthieu Gafsou on his new project exploring bionics and the use of new technologies for human therapeutics.
Winner of the prestigious HSBC Foundation for Photography Prize in 2009, Gafsou has exhibited widely both in Switzerland and internationally. He is now working on his fifth book addressing the topic of bionics.
The collaboration allows Gafsou to shoot selected aspects of Wyss Center neurotechnology projects while expanding the Wyss Center’s public engagement activities and reaching new audiences through local and international photography exhibitions.
Gafsou’s previous works including Alpes (2008-2012), a collection of perspectives that question the status of the Alpine landscape, marked by the development of tourism, and Sacré [Sacred] (2011-2012), a photographic exploration of the Fribourg Catholic Church – have confirmed his position in photography. In 2014, Lausanne’s influential Musée de l’Elysée hosted his solo show entitled Only God Can Judge Me.
He lives and works in Lausanne where, in addition to his artistic photography projects, he is a faculty member at the University of Art and Design (ECAL).
