The exhibition features innovative art science works by Latvian and Belgian artists, who are envisioning sustainable future scenarios with regards to food and energy. The artists have used innovative methods to create sonic, visual and 3D representations of various environmental and biological data collected during their long term techno-ecological researches.

With: Gints Gabrans, Rasa Smite And Raitis Smits, Martins Ratniks, AnneMarie Maes, Gert Aertsen, David Debuyser, Voldemars Johansons, Janis Jancevics, Paula Vitola, Rihards Vitols.
