MicroCosm
imedia installation
production: Adem vzw


A journey into the cosmos, into open endless space, has always attracted scientists and dreamers. Gigantic stars, the milky way, galaxies thousands of light years away surround the earth, and we humans can be imagined as small elementary particles scurrying around on a tiny planet. But this is only one of the dimensions of the universe. There is another — a microcosm that we can observe through a powerful microscope. Tardigrades live there, mysterious animals that are incredibly resistant to extreme conditions. Alexandra Dementieva’s installation consists of three video projections of the microworld and an audio composition of sounds that create an atmosphere of immersion in the invisible.
