Collaboration project

Interactive 3D platform and installation

COCO-lands is a growing digital archive of 14 international media artists dealing with the global COVID-19 crisis.

Starting from March 15th, the participants shared their personal reflections on the various forms of isolation from a variety of geographical contexts: from almost complete isolation in Italy, over the strict measures in Austria, to the serious social consequences in the USA and a permanent isolation on a remote island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.

The contributing artists decided to create their digital diaries as a ritual without knowing when the process might end.
