Re-Animated

RE-ANIMATED is a VR artwork that brings back to life the Kaui‘O’o bird, which went extinct in 1987. Using an audio recording of the last bird of its kind calling mournfully to a non-existent mate, the work re-imagines our relationship to natural history. Erratic Animist, a tech-art collective directed by Jakob Kudsk Steensen, hopes that by giving the bird new life in technology, its story will take on new dimensions, and further highlight threats to endangered species and our climate.
