Magnotion wins first prize

The jury’s motivation:

“Magnotion surprises with research communication in luxury packaging. They link research on a small moth’s navigational skills to music, poetry, jewelry and perfume – the scent of science. It is innovative, original and boundary pushing and shows that only the imagination sets the limits for how research can be communicated. ”

Magnotion – Orientation by Magnetism is result of the collaboration between Eric Warrant, professor at Lund University, and Peter Lång, artistic director of Purple White.


Proud to team up with professor Eric Warrant and Lund Vision Group in ERC public outreach project Magnotion. The Bogong moth, here in a beautiful illustration by artist Jutta Falkengren, has the ability to use earth’s magnetic field for orientation.
