Artist in residence: Sadie Weis

Over a period of seven weeks, multimedia artist Sadie Weis observed scientists at PDI working on the synthesis and physical characterization of non-organic crystals. Weis interpreted her observations of molecular beam epitaxy and crystal growth experimentation into representations of a fantastical science, often pairing scientific reality with imagination. Weis’ residence at PDI culminated in the exhibition Nanomaterials /// Plasmatic which was shown in the Humboldt University’s Adlershof Campus in the Motorenprüfstand and  Erwin-Schrödinger-Zentrum. Her work was presented to the public in the frame of Berlin Science Week in 2018.
