Plants’ point of view
concept of immersive video installation based on work of doc. Friml group
at Institute of science and Technology Austria.
Journey from macro to micro world reveals a reality alternative to human beings. How does it feels to grow deep underground? To break through the soil? To bloom? The imaginary visualisation of these processes tends to make viewer to experience plants’ life practice. The installation should also experiment with immersive audiovisual environment which supports the subjective feeling of the video in 180° dome projection screen.
Natural Association of Lucanian Apennines and Basilicata
Lucania and Basilicata are regions at the south of Italy, between Naples and Bari, covered by deep forests of beech and oak. This hilly terrain is inhabited by many precious animals like wild cat, porcupine or falcons. However, the protection of the region is struggling with official authorities, local people ignorance and also natural issues like invasive species of European wild pigs, decimating the population of the original Italian cinghiale pigs.
Goal of the responsible natural scientists is monitoring of protected animals, phototrapping or exploring their nests and burrows with special endoscope camera.
Installation of visual artist Veronika Miškovičová
One of the ambitions of the Photosynthetic Landscapes project is to present the phenomenon of algae as photosynthetic organisms in the field of greenery loss in the urban environment. It shows those simple single-celled organisms as a interesting possibility to build green architecture in the city.
The project works with extreme ability of algae to multiply in short time and to absorb CO2. Two square metres of algae are capable to convert as much carbon dioxide as grown tree and they can enlarge their population ten-times a month.
