Single channel video installation
Projection on a wooden round screen
Duration: 5’32 min
A video collage about biodiversity, made entirely from free online material. Time-lapse animated blooming flowers are forming new shapes due to the mirror effect enforced on them, accompanied by a soundtrack composed out of sounds of rainforests, birds, crickets and other insects and endangered species such as the roars of gorillas, accompanied with a heartbeat creating a backbone to the score.
On the one hand, the work admires the beauty, diversity, sensuality and fragility of nature, as well as it on the other hand mourns the current loss in biodiversity and our often instrumental relation to nature.
