Merkkiviidakko - Land of Systems

Wild Nature Tour presents: Human-Nature –exhibition

Titankik gallery, Turku

installation consists of partly animated videoloops, projected on geometrical roadsign- like surfaces. Information graphics are combined with phenomenons of nature in the artpiece: migratory birds go out with the trafficsign-man. The artist has been inspired by graphical systems created by humans, that make difficult information easier to understand. At the same time she’s worried that by following blindly the given instructions, instincts become neglected. What will happen to the urban explorer in the forrest, when the GPS runs out of battery. Do the laws of societies still exist in the nature?
