"Where does nature start and where does it end?" 
This question has been the source of inspiration for an ongoing series of short lectures. 

I give those lectures as my Alter Ego, the Professor Adele Weiss.
Adele Weiss is an emeritus professor for Cosmology, Ornithology and Applied Phenomenology and also a co-founder of the imaginary Institute of All Sciences in Hamburg.
Aim of the Institute is to enrich sciences with both elegance and imaginative exaggeration.  

I present these lectures usually as short scientific inserts during other events, mostly in queer contexts.
For example while hosting talks or games, like the legendary Music-Bingo evenings in Hamburg. Jolly evenings of music, game and knowledge. 

"I always habe been observing natural phenomenons with great interest and passion. The older I get the more the boundaries between nature, culture and everyday life blur. So anything can be a topic of my scientific research. Subjectivity is reality, objectivity is a mind game."  –  Adele Weiß
