Artist Jenny Brockmann has initiated a transdisciplinary project in collaboration with scientists from the Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) and the Free University of Berlin, in the Orangerie of Charlottenburg castle in Berlin. The project addresses the question of how researchers collect data and information, and how they then transform it into scientific knowledge. In an experiment conducted over more than two months, the artist and the researchers will work with the audience to investigate the environmental impact of differently-colored artificial light on organisms in Berlin’s Spree River, and will ascertain the possible effect it has on humans. The Orangerie itself has long been associated with research, as can be seen by the antique measuring instruments as well as alchemical materials that refer to the fascinating activities of the Orangerie.
With Dr. Jonathan Jeschke (Biology, Ecological Novelty), Dr. Stella Berger (Biology, Aquatic Ecology), Sophie Lokatis (Biology), Dr. Isabelle Bartram (Molecular Biology, Medicine), Dr. Christopher Kyba (Particle Physics), Florian Ruland (Ecosystem Research) and Dr. Ulrike Scharfenberger (Ecosystem Research).

In collaboration with Freie Universität Berlin (FU), Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) and Alliance for Freshwater Life
