The short documentary Children of the Underground premieres with Subterranean Matter, an interactive installation that showcases stories and connections stowed away beneath the earth's surface.
The work treats modern digital resources as the Earth’s natural networks of dirt and waters – a large pool of information connecting spaces, places and people. Subterranean Matter captures and recreates hard-to-access underground spaces using 3D technology: the fifteenth century cisterns beneath Valletta’s Law Courts, Valletta’s World War II war rooms, a Cold War bunker in the centre of Leeuwarden and twenty-first century aqueducts in Friesland. Visitors can crawl into the digitised tunnels, map the stones and soil and even smell the humidity.
