Post Global Warming Survival Kit
BG 2009

When much of the sun light is blocked by dust and ashes (as in the nuclear winter scenario), seeing in infrared becomes the only survival mode. Based on this assumption, all imagery used in the project is filmed and projected in the near infrared part of the spectrum, which is invisible for the bare human eye but can be captured with modified digital cameras and camcorders and is visible with night vision devices (NVDs). Equipped with NVDs at the entrance to the installation, the viewers walk in the space surrounded by complete darkness, a reverberant bass soundscape and the sense of each other’s presence. Disoriented by the lack of light and confronted with the supernatural appearance of the physical world in infrared as seen through their “prosthesis”, they are immersed into a completely new kind of sensory perception.
