The exhibition was conceived by the artists Rosemarie Vollmer (painting, drawing, ceramics, installation) and Sabine Schäfer (media art/contemporary music) as an audiovisual, immersive total installation for the public space and the gallery room:
With a 22-channel spatial sound installation on the shop window facade of the GEDOK Gallery. This façade is at the same time the carrier of transparent paper scissor cuts, whose forms overlap with the transducers, which are also stapled to the panes. The shop window becomes an artistic material and a substantial component of the spatial installation. Composed sound microscopies of bats and insects populate the glass surfaces. Sound and image lead from the outside to the inside. The thematic exploration of the two artists lies in the current context of climate change and the Corona pandemic. The bat is artistically thematized as a symbol for the threatened biodiversity in nature as well as the intertwining and compression of our world: the world of animal life and the world of humans, who ultimately threaten the space for both with their encroachment into their natural habitats.

With the kind support of SV SparkassenVersicherung, Kulturamt | Kulturbüro with funds from the interdisciplinary project support fund Art, Science and Technology and from Dr. Annette Denzinger, Institute of Neurobiology, University of Tübingen (basic sound material for the audiovisual installation).
