Cartographies of the Vanishing Now (COTVN) is a new research and development project exploring the potential of sensory art and alternative cartographic methods to remap reality in the age of environmental collapse. It sets out to capture the impact of the growing ecological instability on the way we organise and model our modern world, traces the forces behind environmental change and simultaneous shifts perspectives to move to brighter futures.
Cartographies of the Vanishing Now
September 9-13, 2019
Fiber space, Tolhuisweg 2, Amsterdam
Jonathan Reus is working s a mentor and research leader for the upcoming Fiber work session from September 9-13.
We invite media artists, designers, performers and musicians to collaborate with scientists, botanical experts, anthropologists, activists, bots and spirits to join the COTVN community and a series of activities which will research the topic of instability and imagine symbiotic relationships between man, technology and ecology. This will be done by developing immersive experiences and hybrid instruments through critical research and audiovisual exploration.
