          The Heart of Miami Introduction This is a ten-screen video wall installation. The size of the film is 768 x 13660 pixels. The overall multiple screen size is approximately 35 feet wide. The film was built as a lossless 768 x 13660 pixel resolution motion graphic. It was then split to be presented as one seamless film on a video wall of ten 46 inch LCD monitors installed in a single edge to edge horizontal networked array in the Research & Development Building One at the University of Miami’s life Sciences Park. The intention of the film is to celebrate life science and to compliment the wide range of innovative work being undertaken by engineers, doctors, and research scientists at the facility. The content of the film includes references to scientific visualizations, but this is not the main focus of the work, the film is rather a free form artwork in 8 sequences intended as a personal celebration of selected areas of research. The film plays as a 15-minute loop.

                  As the buzz behind the Supreme Court's ruling to uphold healthcare reform settles, The Deal Pipeline chats about WellPoint Inc.'s recent $4.9 billion acquisition of managed-care company Amerigroup Corp. with Robert Dentice, managing director and co-head of healthcare at Cantor Fitzgerald & Co. Dentice predicts the acquisition will lead to similar deals springing up in the overall healthcare space. "Now that we have at least a short-term resolution to healthcare reform, I think it has taken a degree of uncertainty out of the system," Dentice explains, adding that this will ultimately "accelerate dealmaking activity." He also discusses the large premium in the WellPoint-Amerigroup deal, citing that it, as well as cost savings and consolidation, which he says are the major driving factors pushing M&A activity. - Sarah Hashim-Waris
