Welcome to Besenkunst!
Where art meets science.
The communication of scientific knowledge is arguably the most profound element on the way to genuine knowledge gain within our society. If we fail to communicate our science, the hard-earned results are worthless.
Through art, these insights can be experienced and communicated on other levels.
I am Mona Schreiber, an anthropologist doing research on plants and an artist, driven by the desire to illustrate scientific findings through graphics and illustrations and to make them more accessible.
On the pages of the „Besenkunst“ I would like to give you insights into my creative world of science and art.
„We understand everything in human life through stories.“
– Jean Paul Sartre –
As human beings, we understand our world through stories. Stories of what was, what is and what will be. All by ourselves, we try to connect things in a causal way and weave them through a thread in our brains.
Even though scientific content is mostly based on highly complex principles and years of research, it also has stories to tell. Some of the most exciting stories of all.
When telling a story, images touch us in a completely different way than text alone can do. Images give us intuitive and direct access to the content and can thus make even abstract knowledge accessible and tangible.
