The Garden Of Delights – The Garden Without Humans
G.O.D. by Maite Cajaraville (2010) based on the
Garden Of Earthly Delights by Hieronymous Bosch (1500).
A world view inspired by the high biodiversity in Chenobyl, an unexpected haven for wildlife.
An ever evolving atlas
for the constantly changing world
and the continuously repeating cycle of
generation, operation, destruction
- Create an interactive atlas for the world using state-of-the-art technologies such as AR, VR and data-driven overlays. Introduce the invisible as the new visible. Establish an open platform for monitoring, experiencing and communicating environmental data as meaningful information.
- Accept the challenge and employ a new world map that includes 100% of life on earth. The Dymaxion map, our grand inspiration, can not do that as it splits the oceans, which cover 70% of earth.
- An estimated 50-80% of all life on earth is found under the ocean surface and the oceans contain 99% of the living space on the planet. Less than 10% of that space has been explored by humans. 85% of the area and 90% of the volume constitute the dark, cold environment we call the deep sea. The average depth of the ocean is 3,795 m. The average height of the land is 840 m. [https://marinebio.org/creatures/facts/]
- Scientists estimate that 91 percent of ocean species have yet to be classified.
- Atlas, the Titan, received the task to hold up the celestial heavens for eternity. Invisible Earth shall therefore be a cosmology revealing the interconnectedness of living systems.
