Science films, photography, installations, multimedia, research – in formal terms my work is diverse. What connects the different projects is the synergy of science and art. Science is fascinating. But how do we communicate scientific content in a thrilling, yet scientifically sound way? It’s a balancing act but also an exciting field which helps institutions connect better with their audiences. This is my area of expertise and I can work with you to creatively communicate your research, in a special and memorable way. 

Johanna Barnbeck

As a trained academic, I can slip into the skin of the researchers. As a multimedia specialist, I am attracted by the manifold possibilities of modern communication. I speak both languages – the language of science and the language of art. I specialise in film-making and multi-media projects. I develop and manage these projects with clients and I share my work with others at conferences and through publications. My world includes theory and practise. I am fascinated by projects which ask questions, and also ones which answer them whilst raising new questions which further stimulate the artistic-scientific research process. >>
