Herstory: New Media Futures

Mary Rasmussen, professor emeritus at the University of Illinois, is a new media artist and bio-visualization specialist. As a graduate student, she was part of a team that developed soft-ware to aid in the location of missing children. In 1989, Rasmussen graduated with an MFA from the Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and joined the faculty of the Biomedical Visualization Department at UIC. She developed and taught the department’s first computer classes for medical illustrators and sculptors. In 1997 she founded the Virtual Reality in Medicine Laboratory (VRMedLab) at UIC. She led collaborative teams of surgeons, medical specialists, computer scientists, and artists to create networked virtual reality applications for educational and clinical use, and she developed the grants that provided the VRMedLab’s public and private funding. She led teams that received the Dr. Frank Netter Award for Special Contributions to Medical Education in 1998 and 2007. She is a featured contributor in New Media Futures: The Rise of Women in the Digital Arts (2018) published by the University of Illinois Press.
