Astrid Alben

Astrid Alben’s poetry collection Ai! Ai! Pianissimo is published by Arc Publications.

Her poems have been translated into Romanian and Chinese. She is currently working on her second collection. As co-founder of the arts and sciences initiative Pars, Alben is the editor of two anthologies, Findings on Ice and Findings on Elasticity, and curates site-specific events that are a mixture of theatre, scientific experiment and performance.
