Artist Statement:


    The presented artwork is a cross-organisational, cross-sectoral, transatlantic collaboration between the art:scientists Dario Rordrighiero and Eveline Wandl-Vogt, the social entrepreneur Elian Carsenat and Ars Electronica Solutions as well as Garmantis. During the first year of the pandemic, the authors developed two pre-conceptioptions of 2D visual artworks based upon open data of a COVID19 related open access archive, namely the “COVID19 cartography” on the one hand, and the “Chinese Sea” on the other. During 2021 and funded by DARIAH.EU, the team scaled up and created an immersive, 3D production for Deep Space at Ars Electronica, launched at Ars Electronica Festival 2021.

    The artwork is not just a unique piece of art, it invites the participant to experience knowledge created at the moments of exploration in a playful approach. In their presentation the authors will refer as well to the guiding questions related to the innovation and implementation process, workflows, funding, scaling up and how the applied methods and technologies may be meaningful and applicable for other archives.
