CHRONOSCOPE by Sara Bonaventura http://www.s-a-r-a-h.it/
“There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.” R.Buckminster Fuller
The main trigger concept is what we call here decrescita felice, degrowth. Chronoscope is apparently a way to see the past, but what if the past tells us more about the future than we usually think?
There’s a sense of entropy; we are now in a point where we should just take a step back. Ephemeralization is not the answer maybe, but this ephemeral symbol, the butterfly, stands for self-organizing, self-regulated – but never fixed or rigid – systems in nature, that can help us to reimagine an ecological approach. Soundtrack by Von Tesla (http://www.vontesla.com/)
EMERALD GREEN by Carolin Koss http://carolinkoss.com/
A dystopian world, where nature has been rendered extinct, breathable air has gotten scarce and the sun has vanished due to exploitation of natural resources and human error. The focus is on 3 people who try to survive and escape into their subconsciousness in order to re-imagine and re-build the contaminated world they live in. Originally presented as a 3 screen video installation, it is an imaginary reaction to real issues such as air becoming more and more polluted, water resources running dry, oceans accumulating tons of plastic waste, the human body degrading through processed food and an obscured force steering the fate of the world.
