Large image (video projection) of the insect catching screen in Panguana

2019 as part of the exhibition "Arten und Elemente" (Species and Elements), Kallmann-Museum Ismaning, Germany    

In 2016, Markus Heinsdorff spent two weeks at the biological research station Panguana in Peru, founded in 1968, where the extraordinary biodiversity of the rainforest is being researched. At night, the scientists catch insects on a UV screen, some of which remain there during the day if they are not of interest for research. Video recordings of what happens at night are projected onto a large screen in the Kallmann Museum. 24 small light boxes also show photographs of the animals on the spotted screen during the day.  

Two further light boxes show the insects and scorpions captured by the researchers as well as the adventurous journey to the research station via the Rio Yuyapichis. 

2 base light boxes LED 60 x 90 cm, 80 cm high, 24 wall light boxes 15 cm deep, 29.5 cm wide, 22 cm high, material: birch-mulitiplex wood, glass, light box foil
