Miguel Chevalier and Charles Bove: "Second-Nature", Place d'Arvieux, Marseille, 2010


Second-Nature is a work that combines sustainable real and virtual. This work consists of a sculpture 18 feet high orange color, recalling the shape of a shell or a large sailing ship. From this sculpture, strong signal in the urban space is projected nightly on a portion of the front of the docks, a new virtual garden generative monumental (28 mx 14 m), inspired by Mediterranean flora (cacti, succulents , palm trees?). This virtual garden evolves and becomes infinite as the seasons.
Virtual plants are each autonomous. They arise randomly, bloom and die according to their "morphogenetic code".
