Oasis is a digital „amplifier“ of natural processes in the heart of an urban environment. Whereas typically, it is the square shapes of buildings and noise of cars that dominate the city, the installation accentuates the curves of the undulating terrain, the movement of the wind playing with the vegetation or the sound of field crickets. Usually, nature is crowded out in the urban environment: into less frequented spots awaiting suitable conditions for growth and expansion. In the immersive installation called Oasis, this relation is reversed – the man-made structures are pushed to the very edge of the perception of the audience that can thus feel the dominating nature – in the multiplied form using technologies.
