During this workshop, participants will collect air samples, which will then be cultured to reveal which life forms exist in the air.
Participants will also be encouraged to bring air samples in large (60 to 100 litre) plastic bags from remote locations of their choice. We can provide participants with an agar plate for making remote samples that are brought back to Neuhaus within a few days. Following a short introduction to aerobiology, surprise guests with expertise in microbiology and biochemisty will answer questions and enrich our discussions about aerial ecosystems and sampling techniques.

Dmitry Gelfand and Evelina Domnitch
Dmitry Gelfand (b.1974, St. Petersburg, Russia) and Evelina Domnitch (b. 1972, Minsk, Belarus) create sensory immersion environments that merge physics, chemistry and computer science with uncanny philosophical practices. The duo’s artworks have emerged through unorthodox collaborations with pioneering research groups, including LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory), the Atominstitut (TU Vienna), and RySQ (Rydberg Quantum Simulators). They are recipients of the Japan Media Arts Excellence Prize (2007), the Meru Art*Science Award (2018) and five Ars Electronica Honorary Mentions (2007, 2009, 2011,2013, and 2017).
