Installation Close up of Diadromí

2019

Diadromí is an installation that was exhibited in the little greenhouses next to our Sluisdeurenloods. Diadromí represents different stages and interactions of the natural world, based on an ecosystem. A scheme that is characterized through its control by both internal and external factors. In a chain of five small greenhouses, different components of earth's system and their mutual dependency becomes visible.

Diadromí is an installation that portrays the refinement of a system. It creates a symbiosis between five small greenhouses. They function as a whole, drawing a relation between phenomena. Together the greenhouses represent an enclosed circular system to portray different stages of an ecosystem, mimicking the cause and effect of synergy. It symbolises the impact of growing ecological instability and the effect of various natural forces. Highlighting our human search to shift our perspective. The effect of the last greenhouse in the system, is not interfering with the cycle and is left open for interpretation.
