Green Screen addresses the falsification of the natural environment by creating a mediation between whats actually real, and our expectation of real things presented onscreen. Small cameras dynamically cut between live feeds of fake plants and present them as live plants onscreen. When viewers progress behind the projection screen, they are confronted with a manufactured micro environment containing fake plants and fans simulating wind.

A collaboration with Kate Casanova and Daniel Dean
