Program

The wonders of nature continue to evolve in digital form – and as a visitor and spectator you directly (though not always demonstrably) influence their evolution.
Habitat is a large work made up of three-dimensional scans of objects from the Dutch national museum of natural history, the Naturalis Biodiversity Center. Stones, fossils and coral species are the protagonists in a meditative, game-like environment: an interactive audio-visual installation in which the human spectator ultimately plays a decisive supporting role. The work is not static, but continuously evolves as sensors pick up the actions of the spectator. However, the input is processed with a delay, and sometimes you are left guessing whether what you observe was caused by your presence or was part of the programme. The process is symbolic of human interaction with nature.
