What do the sarcastic Helga, a Cosmic History teacher, the intelligent Jean-Pierre, an Artificial Geniosity developer, and the fun Mia, Choreographer of News, have in common?

They are Wesen.

All three of them come from the Andromeda Galaxy. They are in Berlin for a sabbatical. Since back there they have creative professions, they use to go for a sabbatical in other planets in order to broad their minds and help them generate new ideas. From time to time, an expedition full of new Wesen arrives through a secret portal in Berlin.

The Wesen share their day-to-day life in Berlin and you can follow them on Facebook and on Instagram. In their social networks, they present nice places, museums, cafés, galleries, parties, parks, people, shows, and so on, with a curious, innocent and prejudice-free point of view. Humans can ask questions and interact as well.

My partner Nicole Plauto and me, Ligia Fascioni, idealized the wesen.berlin to offer a totally different way of bringing home a souvenir from the German capital. The project brings together storytelling, illustration, photography, culture, social media, tourism and history, as well as appreciation and respect for diversity.

They took the form of plush toy arts to absorb experiences more efficiently, as well as being more friendly and comfortable to humans. You can get to know the full story of the Wesen at www.wesen.berlin.

We are developing a cloning technique, so that in the near future, you can take their favorite Wesen home and help them to acquire new experiences. In addition, new expeditions can arrive at any moment.

Berlin will never be the same. You should check it out.
