In “Anachronic Landscapes” a robotic system lives inside of an abandoned industrial structure overgrown by nature. The robotic system executes its daily routine, nurturing the plants with water and fertilising it with fluorescent fluids. While the machine keeps the plants alive it simultaneously ignites a process of transformation forcing the plants to adapt to the new condition.
For the 2nd installment of Voltaje – salon de arte y tecnología, SCI-Arc Faculty members Curime Batliner and Jake Newsum collaborated with Paralelo Architectos on “Anachronic Landscapes,” a work sponsored by SCI-Arc and installed in the parking structure of Centro de Textura located in the industrial district of Bogota. The four-day festival invites artists and visitors to explore, speculate and question on a panorama of themes – utopias, paradox, impossibles, transpositions and assumptions. If we have changed the world and we are surrounded by artificial lives, of ephemeral cartographies, of reconstructed and idealized memories is it possible that our very nature is another ?
