Warm Earth

(installation) (2020)

An artificial ecosystem of plants, sun and servers.
A cultivation of symbiotic approach to life and the future.

The installation “Warm Earth” consists out of a self- built server powered by plants and solar energy, together they form an ecosystem. This work invites to explore co-depending systems and understand the unreliably centred networks around us.

The server and vegetation co-exist in a self-contained ecosystem. They are in symbiosis: the heat of the server regulates the temperature of the greenhouse, which in turn supplies the server with the energy is needs to run. The highly aesthetized machine landscape, the data centre is made irrational, unreasonable and a mainly inefficient space by beign apart of an ecosystem.
