Exhibition of the project results from the semester project “Re-Shaping Nature – When Scientific Data Meets Art & Design”.

In the project Re-Shaping Nature, a cooperation project with the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior and The Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behaviour in Konstanz, we were working on artistic approaches to present scientific data. On design principles of the visualization of data, but also on artistic experimentation with the data.

The students are using datasets from behaviour experiments and are giving the data an artistic twist. They are visualizing, for example, a stork’s journey, the mating behaviour of fiddler crabs or the echolocation of bats.

At the Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behaviour at the University of Konstanz, the work will be presented and introduced in a public exhibition on Friday, May 13, 2022, starting at 3 pm. On Saturday, May 14, 2022, the exhibition will be open from 5 pm as part of the “Lange Nacht der Wissenschaft Konstanz”. At a later date, the exhibition is open via appointment: cascb@uni.kn
