World Upstream

2023 (in progress)

digital simulation

Amidst the hum of the turbines, a quiet picnic unfolds by the river /
A hydropower plant, once a monument to the raw power of (human) technology, now transformed into a site of leisure /
Here, a multitude of life forms converge, re-kindling a once disrupted ecosystem.

“World Upstream” is an upcoming real-time simulation centering the relationship between built infrastructure and the “natural” landscape, through the perspective of an emergent, more-than-human community reclaiming the site of a decaying dam. Work in progress.
