Artwork for Artcadia Award, one of the largest art & technology competition for secondary school students.

Nature is often used to clarify abstract concepts. The way we talk about computer technology is in biological terms. We ‘surf’ on the ‘web’, we protect ourselves against ‘bugs’ and ‘viruses’. And our data is in the ‘cloud’.

What is the impact when we become alienated from nature? Will we at some point forget wat simple expressions like “birds and the bees” mean? Which metaphors will we use in the future to get a grip on abstract concepts.
