How Does Knowledge Get Into Society? A fly-by-artist-in-residence and a Dialogue



The artist Sadie Weis was shadowing some of the scientists at Paul-Drude-Institut (a research-institute for nanomaterials) for eight weeks, observing the way they work, how scientists communicate with eachother, how they explain stuff to an outsider. The result of this dialogue is a light-installation and - maybe more important for the scientists involved - a reflection of the scientists  and of the artist on the languages they use. 
This project of an artist in a fly-by-residency will be wrapped up on Saturday, November 10th with a presentation by the artist Sadie Weis and a panel discussion on differences and similarities in the way artists and scientists communicate with the outside world
