Theory of Flight – Research Meets Fantasy

Art performance by Anna Lindemann

The Event

Research meets fantasy in Theory of Flight, a performance by Anna Lindemann, a composer and artist trained in evolutionary and developmental biology. In a twist on the ancient myth of Icarus, a lecturing scientist reveals she has been growing her own wings using avian genes. Animated chalkboard diagrams convey the molecular biology, while vocal music and animated silhouettes advance the plot, about the risks and rewards of pursuing impossible research.

The performance was part of the after-conference program of the EuroEvoDevo 2014, which took place in Vienna from July 22-25.
