Year of the sun
video / experimental video
nature culture, technology, symbiosis
Nature and technology intertwine in the Year of the sun. The digital world is virtual and nothing in it can be touched. Strangely, in order to interact with it, a gentle and precise human touch is necessary. Video displays, growing from the soil, become parts of this landscape as exhibits of interaction. As the distance between natural and the virtual world dissolves, a seeming symbiosis develops. Nature, interconnected with technology, begins to exchange substances and initiates cyclical transformations. Meanwhile, flies buzzing around create random connections between objects and ideas. Sometimes these relations are neutral, sometimes contagious. Made together with Elia Claessen. Music developed for the project by Suzan Peeters.
