Automated Forest 2001-2003
Video-documentation of ForÍt automatique, day-night version

The day-night version of the installation comprises an artificial day-night cycle. During the 30 minutes day, the birds chirp in bright light. Dusk starts and night falls in 5 minutes, then fireflies start to glow in the darkness. After 5 minutes, dawn arrives and the birds gradually resume their singing.

The day version does not have a night cycle, and is suitable for spaces where artificial darkness is not possible.
