Artist Statement:


    This diorama visualises a future where nature and technology are in synch. Inspired by biomimicry, it suggests that nature, imaginative by necessity, has already solved many of the problems we are grappling with: energy, food production, climate control, non-toxic chemistry, transportation, packaging, and a whole lot more. Animals, plants and microbes are the consummate engineers. Nature has found what works, what is appropriate, and most importantly, what lasts here on Earth. By creatively investigating and exploring technology, eLEMenT:EARTH helps us to both imaginatively experience and critically reflect on the implications of technology, and also looks into alternative energy. ISEA2013 acknowledges ARTCapital for their generous support in the presentation of this work.                                      Paul Chacko: Engineer, Kari Rae Seekins: Sound Design. nanditakumar.com/2012-element-earth
