Unusual insects, a text A.I. that thinks about biodiversity and a 15-meter-high dinosaur in the middle of Moritzplatz – the exhibition “Ambassadors of Nature” at CLB Galerie breaks new ground with exciting references combining digital technology, science and nature. Opening on May 17th, 6 pm.

In the month of Artificial Intelligence, the performative think tank SAVE THE FUTURE presents an exhibition at the interface of analog and digital art that takes visitors into the fragile world of biodiversity.
As a renowned ambassador of biodiversity, Prof. Dr. Johannes Vogel, Director of the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, will take over the welcome: using a QR code, he appears digitally and provides an entertaining introduction to the topic.
The visual artist Nándor Angstenberger has created the 2-meter-high, filigree sculpture of a tree especially for the exhibition. A Tree is made of found objects, including scrap metal and natural materials, and addresses the impact of human activity on nature. The work is also the result of an unusual creative partnership: Angstenberger developed the concept in conversations with text A.I. ChatGPT.
Daniel Kalafata-Müller’s Animals of the future feature stunning, realistic-looking depictions of wildlife. However: the images are A.I.-based and have been created with the help of text-to-image generator Stable Diffusion. The works interrogate the future of evolution. What developments are in store for species? What will they look like? What capabilities will they acquire?
The extent to which the changing environment is already forcing animals to adapt can be experienced in the virtual reality experience Myriad.Where we connect. by Interactive Media Foundation and Filmtank. Immersive and emotional, the multi-award-winning cross-media project tells the real-life migration stories of three animals – the bald ibis, the arctic fox and the green sea turtle.
A spectacular view of the already extinct house-sized Brachiosaurus is made possible by the app 3QR: scanning a QR code makes the imposing giant appear directly in front of the gallery on Moritzplatz – from where it invites all visitors to take a photo together.
