[ISEA2012] Artist Talk: Martin Rieser – SECRET GARDEN

Artist Statement

Secret Garden is an attempt to recreate a contemporary version of the Eden myth in the midst of an urban environment. The structure of Secret Garden will be loosely modeled on the ten paths of the Sephirot in the Jewish telling of the story, which is itself also a symbol of the Tree of Life and the oldest extant version. The Eden scenes will grow around a user in 360 degree 3D panoramas tied to the GPS nodes selected and will be triggered by location automatically.
