On the 2nd of July 2020, I graduated (online) with my ten-months-long research-by-design project in Landscape Architecture, “The Operating Venetian Lagoon: The Agency of Barene.”
Shown below are a variety of symbols from the digital world, from internet browsing to smartphone apps. Which symbols do you recognise?
As humans, we tend to believe that our idea of nature is clearly defined. Especially in times of climate change, this should be questioned to stimulate new points of view. We have always used the term nature as a projection of our personal beliefs. Therefore, the term has a variety of interpretations, such as being an antipode to the city, an aesthetic ideal, an ecological phenomenon, or a source of natural resources. Whether we like it or not, every discussion about nature is heavily influenced by these ideological ways of understanding. Conscious of this, we try to interact critically with these ideologies, therefore making our project just as paradoxical as nature itself.
