" ... creativity in sciene, as in the arts cannot be organized. It arises spontaneously from individual talent.
Well - run laboratories can foster it, but hierarchical organization, inflexible, bureaucratic rules, and mountains of futile paperwork can kill it.
Discoveries cannot be planed; they pop up ... in unexpected corner. " (Max F. Perutz, I Wish I´d Made You Angry Earlier, 1998)
I have to confess that we were simply amazed by this quotation of Max F. Perutz. Not only because it appeared very unusual to us - coming from a "Scientist" :), but rather for its overlapping application. There is a lot in his idea of a perfect space that can be transfered into many other fields.
In a way, our collective is based on a similar "concept" - so we were really happy to transform the LWZ into a little LAB for the last weeks to realise this video for the Max F. Perutz International PHD Program. Comissioned by Bauer Konzept & Gestaltung, it was again a splendid collaborative process.
Thanks to Erwin, Tobi, Alwin, Kyo, Gabs, Rold and Jascha!
