The installation "Red list categories" , is a visual expression of IUCNs (International Union for Conservation of Nature) well known red list, and it`s three last gradations. "Critically endangered" and "extinct in the wild" are projected with letters. The last category, "extinct" , is shown through the placement of the pieces, using the dots in Braille writing. Nina Bang works with this important theme using contradictive elements of art expressions, bringing in art history as well as natural history.

Installasjonen "Red list categories"er en visuell tolkning av IUCNs (International Union for Conservation of Nature) kjente røde liste, og dens tre siste graderinger. "Critically endangered" og "extinct in the wild" er projisert med latinske bokstaver. Den siste kategorien, "extinct" , vises i blindeskrift uttrykt gjenom bildenes innbyrdes plassering.
