This workbook is a tool to gain insight into my research process at  MA SODA (Hzt Berlin)

To navigate its content interact with the mind map below by clicking on any of the terms. The different sections are fragmented and contain documentation materials (videos and text) of my final semester, that lead to the presentation of my graduation piece 'metabolic encounters'. Which is a good entry point to the mind map.

 

Each section imitates a blog-format, the top entries are the most recent ones, scroll down to go back in time, and follow this arrow        to come back to this page.
