In an age where scientific messages are under attack from ignorant orange-faced baby-men, we try to spread our work in broader circles than academia. We are always thrilled to work with artists and creators all over the world to open up conversations around animal intelligence, conservation, and human-animal co-habitation.
Recently, the lab has been working with SUPERFLEX on ideas around Interspecies Architecture, with exhibitions at DESERTX and with TBA21-Academy as part of The Current, and now with some very fun sculptures under the Mediterranean Sea. The installation ‘Dive In’ (above) by SUPERFLEX was born while we were together diving in the South Pacific. From these beginnings, PhD student Anja Wegner is doing her thesis at the interface of art and science, exploring new ways of knowledge generation and communication.
To uncover the fine scale structure (and beauty) of spiderwebs, we often work with Studio Tomas Saraceno , with exhibitions at Palais de Tokyo, where work from our collaboration was on display. We’ve also worked with Tomas at The Shed NYC, at the Venice Biennale, and as part of the DISSECT program.
We have also started an amazing journey with Tabita Rezaire, supported by the Schering Foundation Common Ground program, exploring divinity and belief of communities living in and around the water. With Ingo Niermann we’re taking part of the Geiger Foundation Experimental Ecology exhibition, and with Filipa Ramos on the wonderfully named The Shape of a Circle in the Mind of a Fish.
