When IGB was offered to make a video for Berlin Science Week 2021, we asked the artists Francisca Rocha Goncalves (AQUATAG Project) and Kat Austen (ACTION Project), to get involved. Drawing on IGB research into pollution affecting freshwater ecosystems, such as artificial light at night, microplastic and noise pollution, they give a more-than-human perspective on how human activity affects the underwater world.
