ARC² is a poster submission for the nextNature exhibition held in Kefalonia & Athens Greece. ARC² stands for Auxiliary Reality Cabinet of Curiosities, and addresses the theme of NextNature as a synthesis of the human and digital in the interstitial spaces provided by auxiliary realities, such as augmented and virtual spaces. My interpretation of the theme is grounded in Roy Ascott’s assertion that our involvement with nature will not be…
an inert, passive or genetically programmed participation, but a conscious involvement in the evolution of those forms and emergent behaviours which we identify with life, and which, as our powers of intelligent collaboration and participation increase, will come to constitute the new nature.”
