Foam presents the exhibition »On Earth – Image-making, Technology and the Natural World« at the 50th edition of the Rencontres d’Arles.
The exhibition brings together the work of 25 contemporary artists who use innovative imaging strategies to reflect on the evolving relationship between humans and nature. Besides photography, the artists make use of installation, sculpture, in-game photography and video, social media, image search engines, Google Maps, virtual reality and other visual tools to unpick our increasingly mediated and screen-based experience of the landscape.
