Denise Schellmann

Her project will focus on the process of filtering data during a collision in Cern's Hadron Accelerator. During this process the scientists filter the data through a hardware and a software trigger system. The problem is, the algorithm was written by the scientists, based on their existing knowledge. . . they might have missed something – we are all creators of our own reality.

Denise will build a mirror installation, with two mirrors in back, arranged at right angles to each other. The so called true mirror effect shall confront the viewer with his real self. Many small mirrors in different angles in front will produce an over amount of data, because the reflections will collide. . . The viewer will have to filter the data, just like the scientists at Cern.


Anna Lerchbaumer and Eleni Boutsika Palles

Welcome Home Hubble
A fictional story about the future of the hubble telescope . . .
In 2030 the hubble telescope will be smashed into pieces before deorbiting. The pieces will crash into vanuatu island, a place well known for its history with garbage. This will create some sort of tourist attraction, like an memorial for the telescope itself. . . hubble's rubbish becomes as famous as the pictures it took.
Anna and Eleni will present this fictional story in a short film, which also deals with questions which developments our cities will live through in the near future.


Golnaz Bashiri

She started her presentation with an audio chapter from the book: The physics of time from Richard A. Muller. The chapter was called the entangled enigma the meaning of now “. . . this research question accompanies her through all her projects and presentations. “Now” is progressing, changing advancing through time.


Daniela Brill

She will present this project at the Naturhistorisches Museum. Sit will be a representation of the similarities between our bodies and the space. As a reference serves a picture from the hubble telescope. She will arrange 270 bottles hanging from the top of the room, about 50 will be filled with different minerals and chemicals, the rest will stay empty. She narrowed it down to this number, because 90% of the universe is filled with gas. The arranged bottles will emulate the nebula photo from the hubble.


Irene Zluwa

Her project will transport the idea of a green sustainable world. She invented a self-made building block system, with different focal points. It was important for her, that not the stone itself is important, but the manual. There will be different themes inside boxes, for example: Hunderwasser, Arts and crafts, Street art, M.C. Escher. . .
The users should interact with the building blocks and realize that the whole world could be hidden in small details.


Mariia Panina

Dreams of Autonomy (Master Work)
She examines the phenomena of global governance over normal political states, the opposite of the big “states”, the smallest state entities and how they had their own existence in the renaissance. The Italian sates with their city walls, existing as  a separate entities, confronted with the things passing through the city gates, the “outside”. She investigated, how the government represented themselves and how they really were (Renaissance drawings). She will create non influential landscape with a transparent (no borders) medium strained between columns. This creates a space inside, were you can be entities of something.
