New Nature 2020 / response to day 1

Follow us on a creative deep dive into our first day of NEW NATURE. This video by Montreal-based visual artist Olivia McGilchrist is a creative response to the Zoom presentations on May 25th, reflecting visually on the detail and variety of ideas and projects evoked; and how interconnected and/or complementary many of them appear to be.

This 45s clip is a creative response to the zoom presentations on May 25th, reflecting visually on the detail and variety of ideas and projects evoked; and how interconnected / complementary many of them appear to be. The text refers to the participant's projects mentioned today relating to WATER (I may have missed some) superimposed on combined layers of footage taken since COVID-19, where my own relationship to nature is changing. Hearing so many original approaches was deeply inspiring. NEW NATURE - An Immersive Media and Climate Science Exchange between Germany - Canada - US - Mexico New Nature is a project by the Goethe-Institut, realized with the support of the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, and curated by Canadian documentary filmmaker and independent programmer Samara Chadwick. Partners include: the National Film Board of Canada, Centre Phi, Milieux Institute at Concordia University, Museum of the Moving Image, Massive Science, UnionDocs Center for Documentary Art, and Retune - Creative Technology Platform.
