Transmedial electronic, reactive, sound and visual installation, where art, nature, science and technology meet, being the sclerophyllous forest and its network operation the fundamental axis of the exhibition.

NATURAL NETWORK SYSTEM refers to the interconnections between different members of an ecosystem, including underground ones, such as roots and fungi. Specifically, the systemic functioning of the Chilean sclerophyllous forest, which has outstanding qualities due to its ability to survive in extreme climatic conditions.

The intention is to transmit not only the physical aspect of the forest, but also its spirit. For this, Yto ARANDA has created electronic paintings that use a technique of her authorship, the «double blurred transparency», where the pigment colour, is deeply integrated with the light colour, generating a painting in movement sensation.

From the central installation «Ńuke Mapu», made with soil, stones, plants, sound and lighting, located on the floor of the room, connections extend up the walls to the circular electronic paintings that represent, visually and conceptually, natural elements of the Chilean sclerophyllous forest and its network operation.

Paintings distributed as a diagram or conceptual map, including forest sounds. The premise of this representation is «everything is interconnected», inviting us to imagine the intelligence of the forest.
