Art Claims Impulse presents the South African Artist Marlot Meyer. Touch Ground Sim-biocene is a simulation of a symbiotic relationship between human, nature and technology. In order to refuse our destructive nature, we need to reimagine a way of existing in harmony without hierarchy.
During the exhibition she will create a sensory, participatory ecosystem in our Space that will fill our entire space.
Visitors can walk through the installation, but gallery operations will be blocked.

Bio-Extended NFT, by Marlot Meyer
Installation: Touch Ground Sim-biocene, 2022.
The project Bio-Extended NFT is a continuation, a conclusion, of the installation Touchground Sim-biocene by Marlot Meyer. In the installation, a small ecosystem was created that grew wheatgrass in the end. The help of the visitors was necessary, who activated an irrigational system by their presence and movements alone and thus kept the eco-system alive. In the end, shapes were to be cut out of the grown wheatgrass, which were then offered as works of art. The fact that media art was used to create the wheatgrass shapes inspired us to develop this approach further.

With the purchase of a Bio-Extended NFT, the buyer receives a 3D scan of the original and also a wheatgrass artwork, created from the Touch Ground Sim-biocene installation. If the living artwork no longer exists, there is still the image and the digital 3D scan as an NFT, which could theoretically enable a reproduction from a bio-printer or similar.
