Polygonal Forest

How can we perceive what is not visually tangible in the natural world? An araucaria tree, floating over a vast black space generated by a series of x y z coordinates created by a LiDAR scanner – which uses light and its reflection to reconstruct detailed 3D images destined to revolutionize the way we measure and understand changes in tree structure and forest ecosystems – is the guiding force of the intangible behind Polygonal Forest. Conceived as a virtual encounter within a temperate forest, this platform aims to explore its numerous aural, visual, biological, historical, cultural and conceptual dimensions in order to reflect on our role with relation to these ecosystems: not as external bodies, but as integral components of the rich interrelations that coexist in these natural spaces. Upon entering, visitors will be faced with four paths: an audiovisual exhibition flowing through the different forest layers, a series of educational exercises that invite us to connect with our bodily perceptions and emotions, virtual cross-cultural exchanges on art and ecology, and a varied array of digital works submitted by young creators across Chile.
