Artist Statement:


    Encyclopedia is an ecological installation featuring digital and sculptural content. The core of the work is a text generator that creates encyclopedic entries for extinct fictive animal species. These unique entries are given away as printed index cards to visitors of the exhibition. The work aims to put a gentle focus on the state of the planet, meanwhile exploring the possibilities of digital art. The text presentations of each species shift between matter-of-fact descriptions of habitat and feeding habits and more poetic sentences of the characteristics of the species and its surroundings.
