The work Canis Lupus by Jakub Jasiukiewicz is an interactive installation which generates an artificial image of a city where wolves, instead of people, walk in the streets. The installation is based on a complex 3D design and on programming that pushes the limits of the use of technology in contemporary art, dissolving the boundaries between design, science and art.
The analogy between humans and wolves that Jasiukiewicz presents in the work addresses the main theme of this year's festival, examining the similarities between human beings and animals, and how humans relate to the animal world in a metaphorical way. The work also offers innovative suggestions for us to reconnect with nature.
