Moving Nature

2017/11/06

In a setting with metamorphic relationships between (micro and macro) devices, bonds are established with subtle and fragile worlds, thus underscoring various issues related to the environment, climate change, and the extinction of biodiversity. In the dynamic of artificial lives, synthetic beings also adopt forms of behaviour that emulate those of nature, recover their materiality, or simply and categorically challenge laudatory views on technology.

Moving Nature is an interuniversity action in Argentina and Brazil featuring works by artists who, with different perspectives and selections, create an assembled symphony of flows, while simultaneously expanding and contracting the scene.

The distinctive shapes adopted by the pieces of this show favour the autonomy of the parts within the framework of an integrated whole, where every entity has a unique nature and still is on equal terms with the others (men, plants, devices…). Most importantly, the entities outline other points of view concerning the context, and go beyond the human-centric approach to propose what Rodolfo Kusch described as “be-being”: a form of being situated in indetermination, a dynamic humanity in an empirical, specific event.
