A world distorted by ecological disaster … species collapse and reform like tectonic plates … charged earth and floating ecospheres appear … technofossils begin to take form …
As digital artists it’s important for us to find spaces to come together in real life and build community. The opening was a really great opportunity to meet other likeminded creatives. I’m excited for the friendships and collaborations which have already sprung up and extend a big thank you to Pocko for making this happen.

A textural amalgamation of digital realms, translucent creatures and virtual landscapes reflected in the deconstructed sound narrating the opening evening.
– Guia Bertorello, Performer (guia&tagor)
Digital art around the environment occupies a uniquely ironic position in the broader on-going ‘climate art’ movement, given the weighty demands on energy & computing power involved. This group of artists are playful & conscientious in representing nature and organic life through their tech-heavy medium, and the imagined climate futures depicted in their work draw from novel utopian & dystopian ideals.
