Raamwerk

How do you get nature and city together in one image? With this question as a guideline, the makers of WERC have designed a video installation that visitors can walk through. By standing in this immersive installation and looking at the images from nature, the forest suddenly feels very close.

The multidisciplinary art collective WERC draws a lot of inspiration from nature. Biomimicry therefore plays a major role in their design process. Biomimicry is the science and art of imitating biological ideas in nature to invent, improve and make human applications more sustainable.

The members of WERC make people look at nature in a different way. Their work, which takes place at the intersection of art, science and technology, often shows biological processes and visual elements from nature. This installation is also a combination of nature, art and technology.

Using 3D scanning techniques, the makers of WERC have digitally mapped parts of a forest. This realistic and highly detailed data is processed and edited into video that is visible on the LED frames on the Grote Markt in Groningen.
