Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all the people that supported the Lecture Tour 2006 and to all the 400 students from three different continents that attended our workshops!

At the atrium

We handed out the price for best project two hours later than scheduled. Because time was limited we came up with an alternative for the light circles. At the atrium of the faculty we made a spiral out of two hundred and forty lights together with the students.

Social behaviour

Although most of the students had already encountered an orang utan still many questions remained. Especially the social behaviour of infant apes was triggering which led to lively discussions.

Lots of students

Our workshop took place on the last day of the international APSDA 2006 congress. About two hundred students from Malaysia, Korea, the Philippines and Indonesia showed up. The different cultural backgrounds led to interesting results for the orang utan assignment.

Pieces of art

We discovered that the tropical climate of Kuala Lumpur has several side effects on its buildings. The subject we liked most were walls that had spontaneously eroded into pieces of art.
