Gisèle Trudel (CA)
Documentation of the first art installation of the Canada Research Chair MÉDIANE, presented outdoors in July 2021 at Jardin botanique Montréal. The installation experiments artistically with the ecophysiological data of three species of trees collected by the research programme SmartForests. The artwork proposes tree technologies and machines as witness and memory, up close and from afar, of a continuous sensing relation between forest, weather and climate; a situated, constant, variable, cyclical and energetic exchange.

Reclaiming the Planet will be a publication, series of video taped discussions, and installation of data visualizations and architectural models. In this piece we showcase the results of our current architecture research studio investigating how industry 4.0 is transforming territory, environment, and political-economy. The project involves data visualizing the changing Quebec extraction industry ecologies, and imagining speculative designs for inhabiting post-extractionary territories in the future.
Emerging landscapes and Possible Futures: Global Urban Wilds and Environmental Storytelling
Jill Didur (CA), Tony Higuchi (ES)
The Global Urban Wilds locative platform curates ruderal landscapes that survive in city spaces and invites the user to explore the entanglement of urban biodiversity, site remediation, and settler culture in contexts such as Montreal's Champ des Possibles. The site-specific, GPS-enabled locative sound walk and app affords users experiences of “embodied knowing” in urban wilds that represent informal brown/green spaces on the edges of urban development.
