New Now Artist Residency
Hyper Natural Forces
NEW NOW is a Festival for Digital Arts at Zollverein UNESCO World Heritage in Essen. It transforms the Mixing Plant on the former Coking Plant on the coal mine industrial complex into a production site for Digital Arts. NEW NOW invites artists to show new works in spectacular surroundings and to produce site-specific works.
NEW NOW invited seven artists to produce new works for the exhibition Hyper Natural Forces, on display from the 1st of June till the 6th of August 2023 in the Mixing Plant at the Coking Plant of the Zollverein UNESCO World Heritage Site. Their research artistically explores animal behaviour through robotics, creates new kinds of flora and fauna through artificial intelligence, and bio-hacks the CO2 absorption of plants.
