Video installation on show at De School, Amsterdam
Everyday we are confronted by more and more artificiality in our surroundings. Our natural spaces are slowly transforming into a mise en scène that reflects our human activities. Simultaneously, it can also be seen as a device that we employ as we desire. ‘Earthskin’ is a botanical artwork, a video sculpture consisting of flora and artifacts extracted from our everyday lives. Not only do these elements exist in the grand scheme of things, but they also form their own microcosms. The viewer is brought into an unfamiliar environment through micrography and collaging. Organic and synthetic bodies circulate seamlessly, creating an unknown habitat and breathing space. What we were first unable to perceive, is now immortalized in a new digital creation.
