In the Anthropocene age, no ecosystem is unaffected by human action: the aim of the Vision Competition is to rediscover potential interconnections between the artificial and natural landscape of Tallinn by addressing the conflictual relationship found in the Paljassaare Peninsula between land and coast, development and conservation, wastewater treatment and protected ornithological areas.
Tallinn Vision Competition challenges participants in considering Paljassaare as a potential hinge point and interface of new local and international dynamics which include distributed economies of production, heritage as a process, tourism as a material practice.
How do we design a new terrain that synthesizes infrastructure and ecology?
Can we use digital or analogue simulations to convert maps and data into morphogenetic processes, a new spatial language to define this emergent Anthropocene landscape?
Tallinn Vision Competition calls for new hybrid scenarios represented as simulations of potential future coexistence. Proposals should be in the form of short videos or simulation frames where spatial articulation is a clear function of time. All kind of simulation methods are welcome from the most abstract digital computation to analogue material experiments.
A specific set of data is provided upon filling in a free-of-charge Registration Form and participants are invited to engage with this information as starting point for their simulations.
