Georgia Tucker's Advena (2020) presents a virtual eco resort, a tropical digital environment responding to the spectator’s desire to escape their monotonous life of apocalyptic chaos and to discover an ideal Instagramable landscape of idyllic fauna, colourful architecture and warm beaches.
The work explores the ecological and social impact of tourism and its corresponding resorts, often used as an escape from a technologically driven urban life and the lived reality of the environmental crisis. Simultaneously, the work questions the corporate renovation and marketing of land as luxury oases.
Flecto (2020) captures a scene when the spectator takes a break to contemplate Advena’s tropical and rocky landscape. Framed by its architecture, the view allows us to admire the island’s landscape from an intimate perspective whilst revealing a land on the horizon.
