Perennial Land

(c) Isabelle Duverger

“Perennial Land – The Data Forest” is an immersive installation that combines the beauty of various forest environments with the importance of data-driven insights into a human’s impact on nature. Stepping into a space transformed into a multi-climate forest, tech and tools about resources and equity are seamlessly integrated into the environment like trees. We want to push aside the modern habit of thinking of nature–culture divide, decolonize technology and highlight the ways landscape contributes to social, political and psychic ideas of space. The vulnerability of the environment is directly related to that of certain communities. Nature does not need us. We need nature.
