Andrea Carrillo, Lucía Millet & Lucía Ugena present COMPOSTING FIELDS #1: ISLAND OF SIMULATION 

VIDEOESSAY

This work explores the ethical, aesthetic, and technological implications linked to the simulation of tropical ecosystems. It is based on the case of the Climatron, the first geodesic dome greenhouse, built in 1960 in St. Louis Missouri that attempted to simulate specific ecosystems of Hawaii, Java, India, and the Amazon for research and performance purposes.
