Self-Portrait in the Lab

Spending some days at the Limnology Department, Fish Ecology Group, and observing their experiments, I tried to work with materials and tools at hand (fish larvae, test glass, Alizarin red). Being there and working in the laboratory, I tried to reflect on the strange feeling of me being there as an “artist”. This led me to the idea of taking a number of self-portraits in the lab. Thanks to Franz Loisl, Aron Lechner, Bernhard Zens and to Reinhard Krusch for their support.
