The Garden of Evolution / 2017
Indoor installation for Athens Digital Arts Festival, Athens
‘The Garden of Evolution’ is an interactive installation, originally shown outdoors in Dundee Botanic Gardens on May 2016 and recreated in this space in the form of an indoor garden.
The QR codes work as connectors between the physical and the digital worlds, augmenting reality and bringing an additional layer to the life to the garden. The viewers are called to scan them in order to decrypt the sound pieces hidden inside them.
This hybrid ecosystem investigates the relationships we develop with οur mobile devices as everyday users but also as spectators of art. It deals with the way digital technologies change our perception, enhance and displace our senses and re-shape our interactions and communications as we become increasingly more dependent on them to a level that they become our new nature.
(In order to listen to the sounds, please refer to the first 'Garden of Evolution' project. )
