FITOPÍA is bioinspired in the plant world. This performatic installation invites participants to approach the notions of activity and passivity in inhabiting one’s surroundings, questioning the implications of our overactivity in the environment.

By Lorena Ormeño

The current water scarcity and ecological crisis highlight the need for questions that invite us to look at non-human models of coexistence between living things.

Inverting the attention toward the plant world opens up diverse perspectives: decentralized organization that does not hold the brain to be the only hierarchically ordered command center; collaborative modes of survival; and capacities for adaptation, among others.

The ecosystem of FITOPÍA is made up of different media — sound, visuality, performance and video, constituting a tapestry of organic elements, waste and diverse technologies — which guide the sensory experience toward reflection.
