Straegic and tactical tendencies in the art of communication
Makrolab and Insular Technologies, and their
Makrolab is designed as an autonomous, modular
communications and living environment, which is powered by
sustainable sources of energy (solar and wind power). It is
designed for a long existence in an isolated environment and
can withstand extreme natural conditions. It has its own research
and experience goal. The station is built as a combination
of various scientific and technological logistics systems.
Makrolab makes use of scientific and technological tools,
knowledge and systems, but it projects them in the social
domain of art. We, the authors and crew, make use of the system
of art for the shaping and representation of an integral empirical
and creative experience.
