The Campus Cartographies are an exploration of plant diversity in and around the Kepler Gardens taking place during this year’s Ars Electronica Festival in the framework of Roots & Seeds XXI. Together with host Veronika Krenn, the participants dive into one aspect that has a critical impact on our plant life: the soil that is its basis for growth.
Roots & Seeds XXI - What is the Biodiversity Crisis?
Lucio Montecchio (IT)
During the last years, the discourses around the loss of biodiversity and more sustainable production and consumption models have advanced widely in the fields of natural sciences, social sciences and new technologies. How can we change this and co-create a more sustainable future?
Roots & Seeds XXI - ABOUT_ Multidisciplinary Garden Cartography
Claudia Schnugg (AT)
During the Roots & Seeds XXI workshops, participants from different fields (artists, scientists, philosophers, researchers, curators, cultural agents, and others), whose practices are linked to the plant world in different ways, will analyze the crisis of biodiversity with the intention of proposing sustainable ways of relating to nature. Through these workshops, Roots & Seeds XXI seeks to safeguard and promote botanical heritage, weaving scientific knowledge with storytelling and humanities.
