Judith Egger is an artist who grew up in a family of scientists, in a world where only things that can be proven are considered important. She rebelled against that point of view and created art focusing on the beauty of imperfection and chaos. Teaming up with Prof. Dieter Braun, a biophysicist who tries to simulate the origin of life in his lab, took her completely out of her comfort zone. Inspired by his work and through their many discussions, Judith created a variety of installations focusing on the origin of life and evolution, discovering that science and art are not so different after all. . What can science and art have in common?
