Joseph Michael | Amazon – Raised Up Sky

9 December 2020

An artist talk that provides insight into the development of visual artist Joseph Michael’s augmented reality artwork, Amazon – Raised Up Sky

Amazon – Raised Up Sky is an augmented reality artwork that explores the interconnectivity of humans and nature, a groundbreaking fusion of art and science placing the viewer in the heart of the Amazonian rainforest. Through conversations with indigenous leaders, scientists and artists, Michael explores our physical, biological, and cultural link to trees. 

Experience the augmented reality work in development and watch a short documentary following his process in this artist talk with Joseph Michael. 

About Joseph Michael:

Joseph Michael’s large-scale installations bring remote areas of the world to the core of urban centres, challenging a human centred worldview and bringing into stark focus the consequences of our treatment of the planet. His works are internationally recognised, most recently having exhibited Voices For The Future on the United Nations Headquarters in New York City during the 2019 UNGA and Climate Action Summit.
