The Machine and the Flower

Whilst the machine grows and grabs all the headlines, the forest watches and heeds a silent warning. This documentary project is framed as a dialogue between nature and technology. It was filmed at two locations: the interior and exterior of the ALBA Synchrotron, an impressive building located on the outskirts of Barcelona, considered the most complex machine in the southwest of Europe. As the focus shifts between each location, the philosopher Juan Arnau provides his reflections, he is also an astrophysicist, specialist in Eastern cultures, and staunch defender of humanism in the age of technological distractions.


Pau Faus was the artist-in-residence selected by LOOP Barcelona to create this video work.
