The "Duality of Nature" is an experimental video that deals with the duality of natural versus technological nature. Nature is in any case a construct, whether in dynamic processes, dis-analogous systems or in physical, technical signals.
"Nature" is a formula for the forms in which the symbolic structures of representational strategies are organized in reality as in fiction. Where are the boundaries, the intersections, the blurring of boundaries, and the analogies between "natural" nature and "artificial" nature? These deliberations form the basis for the video.
