Ars Electronica Garden Prague
SYNTHESIZING / DISTANCING Isolation, Ecology and Democratic
Johannes Kepler came to Linz from Prague in 1612. 408 years later, an intervention in Kepler’s gardens arrives from the Prague AAAD in the form of two experimental public space platforms, that connect the seeming opposites of nature and technology (Photosynthetic Landscapes) and democratic openness vs. safe insulation (The Platform). The installations respond to the current crises – environmental and epidemiological crises, which have only underscored the old-new need to bridge these “contradictions” into a system.
