Rym Nouioua is an independent artist and wildlife ecologist based in Freiburg, Germany. She studied forestry and environmental sciences (Bsc.) in Freiburg im Breisgau and Ecology (MSc) in Bremen. In 2018 she started her current project “batsound and beats”. In this project she examines the communication of bats by recording the ultrasonic sounds and presenting them into soundperformance. Hereby she tries to illustrate the interrelation of human and non-human and create points of contact of human and animal habitats. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
