∆IRPL∆Y "orbital media sculpture" 
At sunset on September 23 (from 7.03 p.m.), an art event by Sabine Kacunko will take place in the Lustgarten on the UNESCO World Heritage Site Museum Island in Berlin. ∆IRPL∆Y is initially a powerful 600-watt laser beam that shoots vertically into the stratosphere. Its color indicates the currently measured air quality on site. The users on site can change the laser color by using an app by exhaling the inhaled air into their smartphones. ∆IRPL∆Y makes it possible to directly experience the interaction of breathing and air movement. The vital function of inhaling and exhaling thus creates a fundamental connection between breathing beings and their planet. ∆IRPL∆Y is playfully transformed into a vivid model of an expanded environmental awareness.

ΔNIMΔ ΔPP "The World's First Collaborative Lung Machine"
The ΔNIMΔ ΔPP (https://anima-web.de) enables an experimental handling of the exchange of global, local and individual air flows. The ∆NIM∆ ∆PP aims to generate new awareness, knowledge and action to support global efforts to limit the human-caused impacts of climate change. With the ∆NIM∆ ∆PP, a participatory collection on environmental changes caused by humans is being created, which aims to go beyond the current forms of participation in museums and research institutions. As a result, concepts such as “Citizen Science” and “Planetary Health” will be further developed in public space as CITIZEN ΔRT & SCIENCE
