Sabrina Ratté New CGI Video Series Simulates Extinct Floral Ecosystems

Sabrina Ratté’s new video series Floralia premieres at Centre Pompidou, Paris, as part of Hors Pistes Festival. Inspired by the writings of Donna J. Haraway, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Greg Egan, the Canadian CGI artist simulates four ecosystems “born from the fusion of technology and organic matter, where past and future coexist in a perpetual tension of the present.” Each ecosystem, created using photography, 3D animation and analogue technologies, constitutes an archive, where samples of extinct plant species are preserved and displayed in virtual dioramas.
