Drempelprijs Social Practices 2017

Jury Drempelprijs:

"Elise surprised us with a 3D-installation that demonstrates her ‘Mother Earth Network’ in which she invites citizens to upload all sorts of data sets on all aspects of nature and planet earth at large into a digital network."

The Mother Earth Network

My name is Elise Marcus and I am a sustainable mindset designer. My dream is to realize this project within the next years. I strongly believe that the Mother Earth Network can be a first step into a world where we are connected to Mother Earth.

Citizens and scientists will be able to upload data of nature to a digital network: The Mother Earth Network. After uploading, the data will be translated by an artificial intelligence into a human-like story and video projection. All over the world, people can participate by collecting data on water, air, soil, plants and rocks with the Data Collection Kit. Mother Earth Network will be a new way to communicate, listen and feel empathy for our planet. By feeling connected with our surroundings, we will be intrinsically motivated to pursue a sustainable lifestyle.

Nominations: Drempelprijs 2017 and Bachelor Research Prize 2017, Bachelor Award Hogeschool Rotterdam.

Come visit our Graduation Show and see Elise's project in its complete beauty and complexity!
