Oracle
April 3, 2020

Oracle is a record of the relationship between the planet, humans, and technology. Filmed at Biosphere2 — a 3.14-acre glass and steel structure, the work renders the interaction of light, air, water, soil, flora and fauna as synthetic elements inside the self-contained ecosystem. In the age of the Holocene, Biosphere2 becomes an allegory for our entanglement with the world - where substances like CO2, bacteria, UV rays, the weather and viruses exert their own force.
