What Nebula, What Hyperbolic Light, What Flora and Fauna (WNWHLWFF) is the second work of an ongoing project G=A=R=D=E=N. Through multimedia installations and performances, the series speculates on the idea of “habitat” in the context of technological acceleration and urban sprawl. It uses “garden” as a metaphor for re-imagining an ideal habitat where human, natural and man-made materials coexist. WNWHLWFF is a 3D animation essay about dwelling in such accelerated future of landscapes, where silicon and carbon-based matters are hybrided, e-waste became organisms, and abandoned motherboards are enlarged into construction sites, oil rigs and building blocks. The slow camera panning enables the imposed rhythms of existing to be bent for a pause or a reflection.
