Exhibition opens on Friday April 26th, starting 6pm at Entrée, and continues to Trykkeriet (with bus)!
The project combines forest history with new image technologies. With the Bergen local history as backdrop and artificial intelligence as optics, the project takes a look at how aesthetics, technology and politics influence how nature is shaped and managed, mediated and discussed.
