‘Open model for an affective landscape, virtual becomes real when necessary’ is a 100% non-organic meditation on virtual simulations of natural ecologies. The fictive documentary makes suggestion to dwelling in virtual landscapes as a call forwarding to the death of nature. The Internet sourced imagery and sound-bites have been animated into a moving landscape ranging from crude cutups to dreamy vistas where exotic animals call out to the senses. The content problematises intellectual property and thinks through the concept of ersatz nature.
