„I will describe my work in different research projects where I have been part of transdisciplinary research teams. I will talk about my experience of working with scientists and engineers from different disciplines, from biology to nano-technology. I will also talk about three current projects I have been working on here in Vienna and show a small exhibition of the results. One of the projects is a book I am making together with Swedish artist Mattias Bäcklin and we will show some works that belong to the book and studies and results from an excursion we have made just outside Vienna."
