Entangled Realities
Sebastian Pirch (AT), Norbert Unfug (AT), Christiane Hütter (AT), Jörg Menche (DE)

The human species is surrounded by networks. Interrelations shape our physical and digital environment, from airports and cityscapes to social or genetic interactions. An invisible body of connections is interwoven within our physical reality. The digital and physical shall form a symbiotic realm, visualized in a virtual world to be experienced by a human spectator. Through transitioning in between different environments, from urban networks to the human body, the Entangled Realities communicate the diversity of complex systems shaping our human habitat.

Manuela Hillmann (Producer of Online Gardens) and Pablo Bes Alonso (Project Manager) cordially invite to a journey to a life space created out of the combination of Creativity, Humanism and Ecology that Garden Seoul, London and Vilnius bring to the Ars Electronica Festival 2021.
