Towards the Zero Point deals with strategies of the human civilization progress: conquest and appropriation. The idea was to look back to the history and to find an example: the conqest of the North Pole – an area, which is highly appreciated by the countries and which seems to disappear soon from the maps. The visitors are invited to make a 3D trip and to set their flag at the geographical zero point (90°), provided they will arrive there.
The work was developed for the Media Art Festival in Rome during a residency at the Fondatione Mondo Digitale. With the friendly support by the Goethe Institute Rome.
