MIMESIS

fuse* Italian Premiere

Mimesis is a large scale installation which takes inspiration from the biological evolution of life on the planet while investigating the influence that anthropic action has on earth. It wants to explore our positive vision towards what can be preserved, changed or improved in our ecosystem and the consequences of our practices on different habitats. Since the beginning of our history, we as humans have tried to imitate and reproduce aspects of reality in order to create a meaningful representation of everything that surrounds us. How can we represent the scenario that is ahead of us, our future planet? Through this work we try to reveal how the future will be influenced by the way we interact with the environment. In order to do this we created a generative system which collects and elaborates data from the local environment where the installation is staged. These data constantly a!ect the visual and sonic outcome creating an audio-visual generalization of the future environment that we’ll inhabit. This concept is not understood just in the mere sense of reproduction or illusory image of nature but rather as a manifestation. Thanks to the real-time interaction of data from atmospheric measurement, nature appears in the digital image to be intensified in its processuality and unpredictability. Thus, Mimesis not only gives back an unprecedented knowledge of the aspects of nature that usually escape the vision, but also increases awareness of the e!ects of human action on the environment.
