mixed media

Else Sibil Somone is a transcientist not yet existing. But once she will have a laboratory somewhere in the proximity of the Academy of Science in Vienna. Some day a memorial plaque will be dedicated to her. An installation at the nearby Heiligenkreuzerhof gave an impression how her laboratory and working practices would look like. In an exemplary way the laboratory is working on, with, via mealworms (larvae of the beetle Tenebrio molitor).  It is said that they can utilise styrofoam (polystyrene) as a food source.
