The Backpack of Wings: Sensory Networks
Clamp sheets
Thu, November 09, 2023 5 pm – 7 pm CET, Workshop
Fully booked
Language: English

The workshop invites you to develop stories together. We use the GPS data of migratory birds as a basis: Using the migration route of the white stork Jonas, we slip into the role of the animal and speculate about its multi-sensory perception during the journey: What could the bird have seen, heard, smelled or felt?

The geographical data of birds not only provide information about their biological behaviour, but also show the interrelation with human activities. The workshop thus enables bio- and geological tracking technology to be used as a tool to shed light on the community of human and non-human beings and to go beyond the understanding of species.

This workshop is part of the exhibition »Driving the Human. Seven Prototypes for Eco-Social Renewal«, Part 3: »Speculative Ecosystems and Interspecies Collaborations«.

No previous experience is necessary. For interested adults.
