“Crossing the Valley – The metamorphosis of decay” (Joachim Jacob & Florian D. Schneider, 2018, Darmstadt, Germany) There is a third layer of knowledge, which is the philosophical reflection on our own practice of “making sense of the world”. The information panel, with its scientific layout and conceptual graphics, is representing this layer of epistemological discourse. We placed it in far distance from the Gradient, to stumble upon when leaving the artwork, and only for those who seek it. #JoachimJacob #landart #ecoart #environmentalart #sciart #ecology #anthropocene #forest #art #artinnature #sculpture #nature #goethe #science #crossingthevalley #waldkunst #darmstadt #artofinstagram #modernart #artgram #contemporaryart

“Crossing the Valley – The metamorphosis of decay” (Joachim Jacob & Florian D. Schneider, 2018, Darmstadt, Germany) Detail of the last of the the walls, where decay of the wood is most advanced. The wood is soft, breaks open if you touch it. Mycelium grows all over. #JoachimJacob #landart #ecoart #environmentalart #sciart #ecology #anthropocene #forest #art #artinnature #sculpture #nature #goethe #science #crossingthevalley #waldkunst #darmstadt #artofinstagram #modernart #artgram #contemporaryart

“Crossing the Valley – The metamorphosis of decay” (Joachim Jacob & Florian D. Schneider, 2018, Darmstadt, Germany) The walls of the Integral contain dead wood in distinct stages of decay. With its various points of view towards the Gradient, and the possibility to get first-hand sensory impressions of the dead wood, the walls can become a space of experience and insight. #JoachimJacob #landart #ecoart #environmentalart #sciart #ecology #anthropocene #forest #art #artinnature #sculpture #nature #goethe #science #crossingthevalley #waldkunst #darmstadt #artofinstagram #modernart #artgram #contemporaryart

“Crossing the Valley – The metamorphosis of decay” (Joachim Jacob & Florian D. Schneider, 2018, Darmstadt, Germany) Aerial view of the Integral. Decomposition is a complex process, a continuous succession of organisms with no apparent distinction of “stages” or “levels”. Science defines these stages depending on own disciplinary criteria. Although arbitrary, this framing into well-defined concepts enables us to talk about the gradual process in a meaningful way. On a larger scale, concepts like “Ecology” or “Biodiversity” are also just scientific social constructs representing natural phenomena. The Integral, with its three walls, is our representation of this layer of concepts and convention, contrasted by the Gradient, which – while showing a clear pattern – remains in the distance, inaccessible (some of the tree trunks are placed in the mud and water of the pond).

“Crossing the Valley – The metamorphosis of decay” (Joachim Jacob & Florian D. Schneider, 2018, Darmstadt, Germany) Image of the Gradient. Deadwood decomposition is a slow and miniature process, involving myriads of organisms, that can hardly be observed since it is highly dislocated in space, and since it takes more than a human lifetime to complete. By ordering the trees by their level of decay, we applied a space-for-time substitution, a common method in ecological research, to make it accessible. #JoachimJacob #landart #ecoart #environmentalart #sciart #ecology #anthropocene #forest #art #artinnature #sculpture #nature #goethe #science #crossingthevalley #waldkunst #darmstadt #artofinstagram #modernart #artgram #contemporaryart

Aerial view of “Crossing the Valley – The metamorphosis of decay” (Joachim Jacob & Florian D. Schneider, 2018, Darmstadt, Germany), showing its two landscape-scale forms. The straight “Gradient” crosses the small valley above the Goethe-Teich (front) and is made of tree trunks ordered according to their degree of decomposition. The S-shaped “Integral” (back) forms the conceptual complement, with three standing walls filled with deadwood of three different stages of decomposition.

“Crossing the Valley – The metamorphosis of decay” (Joachim Jacob & Florian D. Schneider, 2018, Darmstadt, Germany) Joachim and I have been starting an interdisciplinary dialogue on how science and art shape our perception of natural processes that are too slow, too small, too big to be grasped by our minds. Our own thematic backgrounds, but also the site itself – a little valley at the inlet to a pond, where we found a heap of tree trunks in different stages of decay – made us converge on the ecological topic of deadwood decomposition. We were intrigued by the symbolism of “the Valley of Death” or “River Styx” that needs to be crossed as the ultimate dichotomy of life and death. But decay is not like that. It’s a continuous metamorphosis and full of life itself. It brings about new fertile soil and closes the infinite cycle. We wanted to show that in an engaging way, lure visitors in to watch closely and discover the wonders of the microcosm world adding up to the large-scale process of decomposition. #JoachimJacob #landart #ecoart #environmentalart #sciart #ecology #anthropocene #forest #art #artinnature #sculpture #nature #science #crossingthevalley #waldkunst #darmstadt #artofinstagram #modernart #artgram #contemporaryart

I‘ve been silent here on Instagram, while I was busy in the real world. This year, I’m participating in “Art Ecology” the 9th international forest art expo in Darmstadt, Germany. It’s a biannual festival for EcoArt and Nature Art in Darmstadt, Germany. This year’s edition invited 23 artists from 8 countries around the world, all working on – in one way or another – how forests and the processes of life are intertwined with humanity. Together with the artist Joachim Jacob from Hamburg, I’ve developed and built “Crossing the Valley – The Metamorphosis of Decay”, an interactive and immersive sculpture on deadwood decay. This title image is a glimpse on the artwork below the trees across the Goethe-Teich, a pond near Darmstadt, where the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe used to meet with friends and fellow artists. Stay tuned for more. #JoachimJacob #landart #ecoart #environmentalart #sciart #ecology #anthropocene #forest #art #artinnature #sculpture #nature #goethe #science #crossingthevalley #waldkunst #darmstadt #artofinstagram #modernart #artgram #contemporaryart
