Julia Vergazova, Nikolay Ulyanov - Floating Utopia
Floating Utopia is a physical and virtual environment and ecosystem that lives and expands with new scenarios. The geological properties and surfaces of the created environment will become the results of machine terraforming, they will be reconstructed through the visible and invisible representations of attentive machines about the spaces of reality. Reality is semi-real. The boundaries of its biological and digital body are similar to the surface of swamps, in terms of their blurriness - zones of geological instability, floating boundaries between land and water, and, at the same time, natural ecotones - sources of biodiversity and places of stress, where ecosystems collide and various ways of species coexistence occur.
