Tomorrow's Nature
An artist talk by Jonah King
Moderator: Rola Khayyat

In “Tomorrow's Nature”, Jonah King will chart connections between the ecological intimacies, entangled histories, and emerging technologies that underpin his cross-disciplinary practice.

He often invites groups of people to enact performances informed by scientific and historical research. The resulting films, sculptures, installations, and technology projects are neither documentation nor storytelling. They are, rather, a combination of the two that weave a new perspective on shared experiences. In this lecture, Jonah King will discuss this process and the upcoming collaborative project, “Honey Fungus”, a Virtual Reality sci-fi film led by an omnipresent mycelial entity.

An accompanying workshop will explore the creation and use of digital avatars in Augmented Reality and Motion Capture. Participants will engage several software platforms and discover ways King uses avatars to approach our relationship with nature.
