Econario (2022)

We hebben Thijs Biersteker en het Woven Studio team geholpen met de ontiwkkeling van Econario. Wij waren bij ditp roject verantwoordelijk voor de software die de front-end data visualisatie verzorgt, en voor de communicatie van real-time sensor data tussen de front-end en de robotische plant.

Ecological artist Thijs Biersteker has created a 5-metre-tall robotic plant, growing on biodiversity prediction data from the Natural History Museum. Creating a (literally) moving monument to the importance of the political choices we are making now for the future of our planet. The artwork ‘Econario’ provides a powerful representation of how choices society makes today will affect the state of nature over the next thirty years. Visitors see the impact of a nationalistic American government, unequal Dutch society, or a just-ignore-everything Chinese politics on the biodiversity of 2050.
