“Ecoscope” is the observation “instrument” for ecological processes, combining the camera and the artist’s eye (from eco/ecology – science about interaction organisms and their groups between each other and with environment; scope – optical device, Greek σκοπέω – observing). We live in one whole ecosystem, but each artist customizes the “ecoscope” under his/her artistic optics, identifying both disease symptoms and health outcomes.
Video works of artists from different countries concern with the topic of ecology and human-nature relationships. They are wake up call for ones, and approaching to the point of no return for others. Growth of big cities and environment pollution, accumulation of dust and human intervention in plants’ and animals’ existence, self-sufficient nature’s life and maintenance of ecological balance are in the focus of Ecoscope participants.
The Ecoscope project was previously presented in Moscow (CCI Fabrika), Kaliningrad (National Centre for Contemporary Art), Novosibirsk (CK-19 Art Center), and Taipei.
In Tyumen, Ecoscope will be held at the site of the Engineering Center Brusnika.
The Engineering Center of the River Port, a project of the company Brusnika is an open minimalistic art space, in which history is combined with the present and the future.
