The Wild West (2017)
HD Video with Sound, 5:33 min
The Wild West brings together visuals of a techno scientific wilderness ranging from space research material to machine vision graphics and scripts about rewilding the West. Geoscientist Paul S. Martin talks about reintroducing extinct mega faunas from the Pleistocene while the voice of a medium channels directly the mega forms from the remote past. Different types of wilderness are referenced like self-growing technologies (learning machines), primal desires and the new existence of the designed Wild.
