An interactive stop-motion animation installation

Ecognosis, a riddle. Ecognosis is like knowing, but more like letting be known. It is something like coexisting. It is like becoming accustomed to something strange, yet it is also becoming accustomed to strangeness that doesn’t become less strange through acclimation. Ecognosis is like a knowing that knows itself.  

Timothy Morton 

The theatrical stop-motion animation installation Ecognosis is inspired by Alan Weisman's book 'The World Without Us'.

In this book Weisman describes how nature takes over the world again as soon as man disappears.

In this theatrical installation stop-motion animations are projected on a 3D paper world by means of video mapping. The stop-motion animations are animated plants, insects and microbes, which depict how our artificial world will collapse as soon as man is no longer there to support it and nature takes over.

On the one hand, we want to make it clear through this work that humans destroy nature by interfering with it, on the other hand, by demonstrating the beauty and intelligence of nature, we want to make people realize that nature is something that must be make every effort to preserve it rather than destroy it.
