The InterRepublic Of Hybridia
Maybe you remember the moment when The District of Leistavia was created for ISEA 2004. While this virtual community has been exhibited at several locations worldwide, a new project called 'Interrogating the invisible' has been created and selected for ISEA 2006 in San Jose. The Leistavian Federal Bureau of Information aims to gather statistics on how it is that people connect to their cultural identity by use of an online survey form. The 'Bureau' is looking for people who identify with either one or two cultures, and is interested to know whether there are any differences between those two groups. The survey will be used as a context for gathering data, and the data will be visualised both as still and moving image.
All information is strictly confidential and your feedback would be welcomed.

For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.

We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
