Aquatic Mining Chant

Rilaoan miners use mental control to operate robots on extraterrestrial asteroids in space.

These robots harbored in a communal marina on each asteroid, are sent deep into the subterranean crevasses of the asteroids to acquire rare aquatic space minerals – essential of the rilaoan economy.

To pass the time in the mines, these robots chant a subversive song about one day being free of their mentally controlling human captors.

Taking Trees By Chance

Biodiversity in Rialo of 2035 is achieved by gaming via random combinations of genes. One outcome involved blending of animal and plant genes and created intelligent talking/thinking mangrove trees in the archipelago.

hARTvest

Vales developed a prosthesis to facilitate harvesting crops on water and hillside. This device records the movements and translates them into artistic expressions the Vales enjoy watching in public. The outside world is interested in monetizing the prosthesis to measure production and increase efficiencies. The Vales don’t want commerce to interfere with their art.

Collaborators

Anne, Terry, Mohammed, Gigi, Amy, Amanda

There is a protest movement against the commercializing the device since it’s an art basis. The two protest graphics represent graffiti around Rilao that defends the pro and con.

Mangrove Forest – Bronze

Prior to the quarantine, Rilaons citizens travelled vertically to their homes and destinations of the moving branches of [Muka] mangrove trees. This intertwined forest led from one end of the archipelago to the other, but after the plague, each district was walled off from the next — disrupting the continuous tree canopy and ending the uninterrupted arboreal transportation network. To commemorate this network, a sculpture of the arms moves up and down.

Hunting

The orders for fresh meat, vegetables, and produce were placed weekly on folded triangles of paper.

Spinning upwards into the tunnel, the orders were aerially distributed into nearby mukka forests.

The locals would hunt and harvest according to the orders and send a representative to the Groceteria to claim the monetary reimbursement.
