PCAI in the Polygonal Forest platform

with Gala network in Ars Electronica

On the occasion of the Polygonal Forest* platform, presented at Ars Electronica 2021, PCAI has been invited to contribute to a collaborative Miro board along with other international partners of the GALA network, exploring multiple forms to connect and communicate through the digital sphere.


Through a series of encounters between various partners of the Green Art Lab Alliance (GALA) –a network of art organizations contributing to sustainability through creative practices in Europe, Asia and Latin America– working from Vietnam, Mexico, Italy, Lebanon, Greece and Chile, various videos, images, words and forms are connected and presented in a Collective White Board, in response to three central questions: How do you envision and relate to a natural territory? How do you offer support or visions for other landscapes? How do you stay creative together?

The Miro board is an invitation to virtually travel through this experimental mapping of connections and exchanges to view the actions, testimonies and voices of different initiatives across latitudes and longitudes. Visitors can actively become a part of this virtual exercise: On the board you can collectively create your own possible landscape in the form of an “exquisite corpse” (a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled, Each collaborator adds to a composition that had been put in play by a previous one).
