The project Connected–how the world is more than the sum of its parts unveils the multifaceted nature of the Earth’s systems, unraveling a system’s underlying structural principles, from natural phenomena to human creations.
Through a transformative journey, visitors are invited in a captivating exploration of the Earth’s diverse biomes, guided by the perspective of three avatars: a fox exploring solid land, a turtle diving through open water and a bird discovering the seemingly endless sky.
Through the avatar’s eyes visitors experience macro to micro systems, from animal swarms, networks of flora, sprawling infrastructures, to the vast expanse of the world wide web and the human organism itself as a complex network of biomolecular interactions.
In a synergistic fusion of scientific inquiry and artistic expression, Connected invites the audience to embrace the beauty of Earth’s interconnected fabric, aiming to foster understanding of the intricacies that govern our world.
