A.I. Magicians and Youtube mentors, nationalistic fantasy and capitalistic dreams try to imagine a new dawn. This multi-biont story is about convalescence, the connections of the past, and the upcoming possible future. No species, not even human, functions alone; clusters of organic species and abiotic forms permeate each other, creating a common history, full of beginnings and ends, transformations, cycles and phrases.

 

 

 

 

The landscape of the installation is inhabited by moving organisms that behave like living things, but do not resemble any known form of life. Bionts adapt the found artifacts, grow together with them and use their potential. Each of the bionts physically interact with each other and with their environment; some remain passive, others internalize technology to improve their mobility. They can be aggressive, they can seek escape, help themselves, dance, defend themselves or be used. By observing them, you can see the complexity of the relationship despite functioning according to simple mechanisms, you can listen to their biotechnological noise and squeaks like birds singing or lions roaring.
