DIADROMÍ by Heleen Blanken

DIADROMÍ, commissioned by Timberland for Mediamatic, represents different stages and interactions of the natural world, based on an ecosystem. A scheme that is characterized through its control by both internal and external factors. In a chain of five small greenhouses, different components of earth's system and their mutual dependency becomes visible.

Heleen Blanken: ‘The only sustainable model that flawlessly and continuously functions is the natural world itself. When you look thoroughly to this construct, it's absolutely astonishing. It becomes apparent we have to become part of this structure, unify and show more compassion towards nature.’

DIADROMÍ is an installation that portrays the refinement of a system. It creates a symbiosis between five small greenhouses. They function as a whole, drawing a relation between phenomena. Together the greenhouses represent an enclosed circular system to portray different stages of an ecosystem, mimicking the cause and effect of synergy. It symbolises the impact of growing ecological instability and the effect of various natural forces. Highlighting our human search to shift our perspective. The effect of the last greenhouse in the system, is not interfering with the cycle and is left open for interpretation.
