Alumna Agnes Meyer-Brandis, who practice has long since focussed on the reciprocal relationships between art and science, will be showing her film forest Green (Sleeping and Awakening) at the Kassel documentary film festival. The film, which will be shown in the category ‘Monitoring – you are being watched’, examines one question: What colour would a forest be if it were only one colour? 

The two channel video installation shows tenthousands of images taken from scientific observation cameras of a forest in Finland over the course of two years – and their average RGB colour values. The point of departure of the investigation was a conversation with the forest researcher Pasi Kolari. Being asked by the artist if there is such a thing as beautifull data, the scientist showed a statisttical curve that he loved, representing the incoming and outgoing greeness of a forest.
