Tamiko Thiel confronts the beauty of life with its endangered conditions. As global water levels and temperatures rise, she discovers that plants and animals are mutating to adapt. Strange new creatures are arising, questioning and transgressing the boundaries of what is considered to be reactive flora or active fauna.
Her augmented reality work allows you to wade in a field of water lilies and be engulfed in their blossoms.
The work was presented during SIGGRAPH Asia in 2013, and since then shown in Singapore, Basel, Munich, Lugano and Toronto.
Activatar’s August exhibition (about the show) is curated by Tina Sauerlaender.
