The Spider Project
Five Channel Video/CG vivarium installation: projection on living spiders’ webs and water mist “screen”. Music by Helga Pogatschar. DigiBeta.
An Interspecies Collaboration
The Spider Project, inspired by the turn of the millenium, is a research project, a website, and an installation contemplating the basic forms of nature: creation and death, time, cycles, the elements, and the workings of the universe.
The Spider Project reviews scientific and technological developments, focusing on the 20th century as the Atomic Age. The piece also looks at environmental concerns - pollution, disease, and issues of ecological imperialism. The consequences as well as the discoveries of twentieth century civilization are part of the entire web.
