Wintergarden 2083

A project taking its starting point in a biotech future to come where the relation between object and subject is liquid and open source.

In the beginning of the 19th century a new scientific approach to nature was practiced by humans especially in the west. Nature was classified and reduced to pure mathematical formulas. Phenomena was in-formed. Here humans once again mastered the role as humans, non-natural beings. One architecture became a great manifestation of this modern world view. Winter Gardens, the perfect artificial form of nature. A space where nature doesn't exist.

“In the ninteenth century city, nature could only be enjoyed in its artificial form, as a product of man... Plants like people had to be adapted to urban conditions” [Houses of Glass]

In this photo series I apply a new model, a new form to an old architecture and see what happens. This is The Winter Garden 2083
