The Dark Forest Artwork

The first stage will track and sense changes in Sherwood Forest, UK and the Mata Atlantica and Amazon, Brazil.  The team will work with schools in both countries, using mobile and web technologies to learn about sensing the forests as they are now, shared myths and the future of our forests.

Active Ingredient in collaboration with NewTV, Mobilefest and the Mixed Reality Lab, University of Nottingham will lead this process using innovative sensor and mobile technologies towards the creation of a new artwork – The Dark Forest.

The artwork will be premiered at Mobilefest, in Sao Paulo in September 2009.
