Künstlich erzeugte Versuche über

The work is the first result of a lengthy research that deals with aspects of animal behaviour – with a focus on the moth – as symbolic for the relationship between human and nature.The video work shown here revolves around the scientific view of animal instincts such as the killer reflex and the ability of animals to react to (man-made) threat situations. The video material is taken from Youtube videos, whereas the text fragments originate from a series of zoological experiments on the hearing of moths.
