I'm also an environmental artist and sci-art communicator. Since 2018, I've been making land-art and eco-art works on my own or in collaborations with other artists. I have a particular fondness for moss. I promote and support collaborations between natural sciences and the arts.

Global Nomadic Art Project

I’m really happy that I can participate again in an art project this year. The Global Nomadic Art Project Germany currently takes place in Darmstadt with the title ‘Nature Art Fieldworks’, with more than 20 artists from all over the world. They visit 14 places in Darmstadt and the surroundings to have a dialogue with nature. I was invited to join as a ‘science expert’ and as an artist.
