Short Stories:

WOODEN SPACESHIPS

 

The work, created during a residency in Viborg, Denmark, in February 2016,
intertwines fictional and real stories hidden in the landscape.

The series brings together glimpses from the technological race to innovation that characterizes the development of the western societies, nature and daily neighborhood life, echoing environmental science fiction references.

 

Wooden Spaceships was made as a response to one of the oldest plantations of oak trees in Denmark (dating 1700 ca.). The Royal Danish Family planned to grow these trees to produce timber for their fleet, a process arrested by the industrial revolution and its technological shift from timber to metal.

Kids today use the area to play and create small vessels out of their imagination.

 

Part of the work was exhibited at the Copenhagen Photography Festival in June 2016. Please click here to access the Panel Discussion and the video createad for the festival.
