Land Bodies, Decomposing Mass by Ingrid Bjørnaali (Norway) - International Festival of Digital Heritage and Culture

24 May 2023 All day

Politehnica University of Timisoara, through the ID/IFR and e-Learning Centre and Multimedia Centre, had the pleasure to host as a guest 𝗜𝗻𝗴𝗿𝗶𝗱 𝗕𝗷ø𝗿𝗻𝗮𝗮𝗹𝗶 (𝗡𝗼𝗿𝘃𝗲𝗴𝗶𝗮) at the International Festival of Digital Culture and Heritage.

She presented the world premiere of her 3D video installation "Land Bodies, Decomposing Mass".

The project is an audiovisual collaboration between Ingrid Bjørnaali, Maria Simmons and Fabian Lanzmaier, focusing on peatland ecosystems and their interpretation through various recording and 3D computing technologies. The work explores specific peatlands in Finland, Norway and Canada from different perspectives, decentralising the human experience and focusing on the idea of natural landscapes as sources of life.

Using photogrammetry, a technology that refers to satellite mapping and archiving of anthropocentric spaces and monuments, the biotope is interpreted bit by bit up close in an intimate interaction.

Ingrid is an artist from Oslo, Norway, who captures specific biotopes with digital camera technologies and works with these pieces of nature on a virtual basis. She is interested in different processes of learning and interpreting our surroundings and the species we co-exist with, through a scientific and technological approach to image making, investigating how they alter our scopic regimes.
