statement

Ivan Henriques is a transdisciplinary artist and researcher working in multimedia installations examining different perceptions of time, memory and environment. He explores in his works hybrids of nature and (technological) culture creating new forms of communication between humans and other living organisms. He considers nature as inspiration and a necessary factor in the development of the technological world.

He researches in various aspects of real time environment data visualization, where it becomes a motive and motor for the platform that he creates within his works.  In a deep look at this information he gets from the environment and other living organisms, Ivan creates interactive and participatory art installations. His visionary combination of robotics and living organisms explores the fluidity of subject positions in the post-digital world. The audience involvement is the core of his creation, approaching all the living species to have a unique experience envisioning a new possible world where we all are hypersensitive to our surroundings. The development of smell, touch and audiovisual installations explores such concepts [1] as: the future (reinvention) of the environment; the acceleration of techno-scientific mutations; when nature becomes culture; the use of natural resources; where these hybrids of nature and technology will take place in the near future and reshape and redefine our tools to be more coherent with the world we live in.

[1]: these concepts were discussed in the e-book Oritur.
