Polypodiophyta
Interactive installation and video

Daria Goffman
The «Polypodiophyta» project allows the fern to be presented as a set of data that can be read in different order. Zoom meeting take place with the artist talk and a story about the work.
«Polypodiophyte» - from Latin fern, fern-like plants.

The Digitocene era allows us to fully function from home and we are increasingly moving away from nature. Memories of what color a particular plant and its leaves really are at different times of the year are more like a dream than reality.

The project presents the fern in its imaginary form and as a set of data that can be read in different orders. This makes it possible to supplement the story of the life cycle of the fern with the properties that it possesses only in the form of a myth.

The video of the project tells the story of the life cycle of a mythical fern, and an interactive installation allows you to touch its leaves in real time using a tablet. With the help of the TouchOSC program, the viewer can set the direction of movement of the fern bushes, thereby turning into gusts of wind.
