A Germ Theory - Earth
The Germ Theory - Earth (2021)

produced by Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Rivoli
Following A Germ Theory – I, this new video titled A Germ Theory_Earth investigates, visualises and performs Benjamin H. Bratton’s mega-structure on a double plane – physical and digital.
A possibility emerges for both the artist and the audience to question the role of art in enabling a comprehension of reality and our increasing alienation from it. The interstice between digital and physical worlds becomes a free zone to allow new doubts and possible solutions to emerge, and to contemplate the environmental topic with different parameters. Water is the first victim.
