Kasia Molga will present her work “By the Code of Soil” done in Collaboration with the musician Scanner . The work was developed within S + T + ARTS Vertigo Residencies and took place alongside the Grow Observatory , a citizens’ Observatory that has empowered people and whole communities to take action on soils and climate across Europe.
The session includes a screening of the work By the Code of Soil followed by a discussion of the project by artists and guests. The work mixes various dynamic data from soil sensors, combined with more Static data on soil texture and season, into a system of visual noise.
“By the Code of Soil is about handing over power to the land – to soil – and depicting it as a first and foremost living organism; not as a resource whose capacity must be maximized for our own benefits. Soil with all its Myriad of processes happening there all the time is like a matrix of the computer – an Invisible force and organizational structure binding all components of the Biosphere together. In times of uncertainties and transitions we need to pay attention to what is Invisible, possibly more than to what is in front of us. ” – Kasia Molga.
Kasia Molga is a designer, artist, creative technologist and environmentalist in heart. She calls herself a “design fusionist”. She reimagines our relationship with nature, while questioning our technologically mediated perception of the environment – and the technology itself. Kasia’s work is part of a Collaboration between S + T + ARTS (Science, Technology & the Arts), an initiative of the European Commission launched under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and Untitled. STARTS’s purpose is to support Collaborations between artists, Scientists, engineers and researchers to develop more creative, inclusive, and sustainable technologies.
Scanner (British artist Robin Rimbaud) traverses the experimental terrain between sound and space connecting a bewilderingly diverse array of genres.
