We’ve packed up the installation to be shipped to Brussels for The Pluto Media Festival and it arrived safely!!
Pluto is a mix of electronic music (Four Tet and Jon Hopkins among others) and media art (alongside Beesley’s work will also be Guido Maciocci’s Augmented Ecologies and other) in a huge industrial space.
Pluto’s website explains our project:
VIP at Pluto festival for sure Philip Beesley, a famous Canadian architect and professor from Canada. Apart from an impressive list of publications, realizations and nominations, he also works on new media-art and more specifically in the fields of digital media, interactive technology and experimental architecture. Especially for Pluto he constructs the ‘Sargasso Field’ installation together with a group of international students at CITA (centre for IT and architecture) in Copenhagen, well directed by Danish professor Mette Ramsgard Thomsen. This giant and incredible mechanical creation is a kind of organic cloud whre the visitor can walk in and interact with. The installation lives as a different world, a biotope full of fauna and flora of mechanics and computer technology. Without any doubt this is the piece de la resistance for this Pluto Festival.
The website for Pluto is http://www.pluto-festival.be so you can follow the progress of Sargasso Fields!
