Amazon – Raised Up Sky is an augmented reality artwork that explores the interconnectivity of humans and nature, a groundbreaking fusion of art and science placing the viewer in the heart of the Amazonian rainforest. Through conversations with indigenous leaders, scientists and artists, Michael explores our physical, biological, and cultural link to trees.
Experience the augmented reality work in development and watch a short documentary following his process in this artist talk with Joseph Michael.
Joseph Michael’s large-scale installations bring remote areas of the world to the core of urban centres, challenging a human-centred worldview and bringing into stark focus the consequences of our treatment of the planet. His works are internationally recognised, most recently having exhibited Voices For The Future on the United Nations Headquarters in New York City during the 2019 UNGA and Climate Action Summit.
Amazon - Raised Up Sky has been made possible by the Latin America Centre of Asia Pacific Excellence.
Note: Attendees are invited to experience the Augmented Reality work in development either before or after the artist talk, at 5 pm and 6:30pm respectively. There will be limited headsets available so we ask people to be patient as they await their turn.
