Lab Café / Nakanoshima Philosophy Collège -- "Sounds Made by Humans and Sounds Made by Machines"

2016-1-27 (Wed) 19:00 - 21:00

In the world of dialysis, clinical engineering technologists take care of both patients and medical devices. It is a "sound" that gives them a clue to detect a change in patients' physical condition and troubles in the device. How can they catch these sounds? What differences are there in taking care of humans and machines? Let's discuss these topics together.

Guest: KONDO Akihiko (Clinical Engineering Technologist)

Moderator: AOKI Kenta (Student, Doctorate Course, Graduate School of Letters)

Café Master: HOMMA Naoki (Faculty staff, Osaka University CSCD)

In cooperation with: Café Philo

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
