Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas

Environmental art project

Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas continue in Turku Archipelago their interest in the encounters between traditional and new technologies. Their new work focuses on the sheep that during the summers graze on the outer islands, literally opting out of the modern way of life as they often inhabit the small pockets of land that fall outside mobile and other wireless networks. More sheep are needed in the archipelago to take care of the landscape. What kind of potential do these animals carry as they grow on the natural meadows, beyond the reach of the networks? Do they provide some answers to those searching for a way out of the endless flows of data in the urban everyday?
