Island on the Run


Mixed media installation

Island on the Run interweaves montages of real and virtual scenes through six media.  Faced with the De-extinction process and personal ornithophobia, it envisions a future island scenario, where an extinct bird called MOA has undergone a second extinction after being successfully resurrected. AI-generated images are collaged with the captured reality, an artificial botanical garden, blurring the orientation to time and space.

Are we moving forward, or are we circling back to square one?
