Biodiversiteit in Augmented Reality

Director: Chantalla Pleiter
Uniting the ingenuity of nature and technology, this augmented reality ode to biodiversity allows unusual and endangered Dutch plants to bloom artistically and musically.

More than five hundred native plants are on the Red List in the Netherlands because they are threatened with extinction. The interactive project Biodiversity in Augmented Reality focuses specifically on this type of flora, which includes plants that have been used for centuries as food, medicine or colouring. The disappearance of a single plant species causes untold ecological damage, because it also means that dependent insects lose their habitat. Biodiversity in Augmented Reality brings these plants to life artistically and musically and reintroduces them to the audience to reappraise their importance to our natural environment. Each plant has a story, a history and its own sound. With the AR app you feel you can almost touch the plants as you hear their stories.

Biodiversity in Augmented Reality was part of Storyspace 2022, an exhibition in the Neude Library.
