For us as CYNETART platform collective the term “cybernetic garden” means collection, storage and translation of personal as well as environmental data. In this process, the virtual and the physical overlap through (re)animation of the data, blurring the boundaries between the fictional and the present. The audiovisual, aesthetic design of this connex finds its framing as a “garden” in the medium of virtual reality.
In the cybernetic garden, the artistic engagement with (digital) images of the self and the world are to grow together and be cultivated through “choral” practices. The title chorus refers to the communal in choral practices: collectively generating, creating, experiencing. Decentralized spaces and activities enable public participation over time and through multiple forms of interaction.
