Cornucopia is a generative and interactive audio-visual installation created for Maca (Moving Arts Centre Amsterdam). It is designed as an ecosystem like Earth’s own ecosystem: self-sustaining whilst influenceable. Humanity is in an endless dialogue with nature, which often feels more like a monologue. We are always hungry for more without listening to our conversation partner. What is our ecosystem telling us? When is it too much? Can we restore the imbalance?
Cornucopia gives our ecosystem an amplified voice through audio and video. With a gentle touch, ecosystem will not respond. But when properly touched, nature will cringe. Cornucopia’s antenna will detect the greedy hand of humanity.
