In addition to our friends in science, we also have the great fortune to work with many people from the art world. Recently, Alex was at DESERTX with friends from SUPERFLEX and TBA21-Academy, presenting ‘Dive In’ (above) by SUPERFLEX, which was born while we were together diving in the South Pacific. From these beginnings, PhD student Anja Wegner will do her thesis at the interface of art and science, exploring new ways of knowledge generation and communication.
We also work closely with Studio Tomas Saraceno to uncover the fine scale structure (and beauty) of spiderwebs. Alex gave a talk at Tomas’ recent exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo, where work from our collaboration was also on display, and also joined for a lecture at the Venice Biennale.
Finally, we are very active in connecting our work in science with education and outreach in other institutes. Alex and Anja recently gave a workshop at the Institut Kunst Basel with Filipa Ramos, we were at RAVE Residency, and we’ll soon be at Atelier Luma.
