  • Planet Triage is a projection mapping installation made at the Wageningen University artist in residency program in conjunction with the 100 year anniversary celebration. The artist in residency program sought to facilitate an exchange of ideas between artists and scientists in order to spur creative thinking about scientific issues. Planet Triage, both a place and an action, visualizes the results of this collaboration. Using computer generated imagery, projection, and sculpture, Planet Triage creates a space for dialog between the artist and scientists about hypothetical, radical ways to counteract the impacts of climate change. By depicting these fantastic ideas as if they are already reality (via fictional news broadcasts and commercials), Planet Triage encourages the viewer to think beyond traditional answers and instead venture towards the surreal or absurd.
