The Ark, an installation at the Ethnobotanical Garden of Oaxaca, Mexico

0

The Ark is a site specific installation, commissioned by and presented during Proyecta Oaxaca, festival de diseño y artes digitales in Mexico.

The Ark is built around the cacti that line the Aljibe, at the heart of the Ethnobotanical Garden of Oaxaca.

Adopting a poetic approach, The Ark gives voice to the garden’s plants, participants in the work, the beating heart of the space and an unpredictable choir.

Telling their story, revealing their fantasised and fantastical character, The Ark is the mise-en-abîme of the trail. A three part audio-visual installation, it unfolds like a movie set in space, in which the wandering spectator plays the role of the camera.
