Lichens, survivors of Earth's exploration post-Hiroshima, may pioneer planet migration, fostering 'human-nature coexistence.' Using TouchDesigner, I parameterized data graph relations, creating a numeric info chart where dots represent lichens and numbers symbolize human Earth impact. Changing relations mirror nature-human interplay, transitioning to an immersive 3D art installation. This piece, featured in locations like Chernobyl's Exclusion Zone, surrounding forests, and polluted urban parks, serves as a reminder that survival in our era doesn't solely rely on conquest and control.
