virtual museum
The Park has always been a platform for testing new ideas in architecture and art, and the next chapter in its curatorial and development programme focuses on emerging technologies. This is driven by the New Media Night festival, established in 2013 by curator Ivan Polissky, and by the work of the Park's founder, Nikolay Polissky, for whom technology has been a vital inspiration over the past five years.
Incorporating the digital into artworks and the user-experience in Nikola-Lenivets Art Park offers fascinating potential. The Park is interested in robotised artworks, augmented reality installations and the creation of a digital representation of the park, which can be employed in user-experience and park and forest maintenance.
This speculative workshop investigated and proposed the digital layer of the park. We build on the idea of modelling the entire park in 3D to create its virtual reflection, in winter and summer form, and establish the maximum potential that this technology, and others, have to offer; from the point of the view of park visitors like yourselves, artists, curators and its future integration into agriculture, land management and forestry.

The digital model of the Park currently reflects a rural, post-agricultural landscape, a space which has been made accessible and public by an accident of fate. The 3D model could therefore be seen as a snapshot in time of this fluke occurrence. The model is mesmerising in its own right and raises many questions about the symbiotic relationship between the real and the virtual, as well as clashing the technological with the softness of a re-wilded landscape.

Through various media; film, online resource, presentation and text, we will aim to answer some of the following questions: what does the digital representation of the Park offer visitors, park staff and artists? What other emerging technologies can we incorporate into the digital layer of the park? What potential does this open up for artists working in the park? And how can we use emerging technologies to sustain local labour markets and existing or new rural communities?
