The HeArt is Present
iLAND - Growth and Process
2018, WebSummit Lisbon
In this performance Regina Frank used an installation that was originally commissioned by the MAAT. The relief tapestry/sculpture features a collage of the most pressing environmental issues based on data and aerial images of NASA, and numerous Governmental Environmental Agencies and NGO’s. She performed every day for 77 min at the busy WebSummit, moving so extremely slow that the resulting time lapse film showed her moving normal and the the viewers and participants of WebSummit 1000% faster. The center sculpture, produced in a sustainable non toxic process from corn oil, held a still silent presence, like a mother earth.
When Regina Frank was not performing herself an AR (Augmented Reality) version of her was present or a garden with sustainable highly effective healing plants like hemp and curcuma grew on the tapestry.
