NaturArchy Residencies: Specter[al]s of Nature BACK @ JRC Ispra

From the 23rd to the 25th of May we’ll welcome artist & architect Ingrid Mayrhofer-Hufnagl to the JRC Ispra site in residence for her project Specter[al]s of Nature – Seeing beyond the visible

In Ispra Ingrid will meet again with JRC researchers Alan Belward (head of the Food Security unit) and Luca de Felice (geo-spatial data scientist), whom she discussed with during her first residency in February 2023. Together, they will further elaborate on the project’s use of earth observation research results and remote sensing technology to speculatively explore the anthropogenic impact on the natural environment on a planetary scale beyond the limitations of our senses. 

To integrate aspects related to foresight, urban planning and design, Ingrid also met with JRC colleagues Elahe Rajabiani (design for policy); Maciej Krystofowicz (foresight) and Lorenzo de Simone and Malgorzata Wrobel from the New European Bauhaus in Brussels between the 25th and 27th April.
