Anaïs Berck is a tree greffier.
The artist name stands for the collaboration between one or more humans, algorithms and trees. What if trees finally make their voices heard, as superior beings on this planet? And what if algorithms were to choose the purposes for which they work? Would a healthier planet then be a priority?
The work of Anaïs Berck is the result of years of artistic research into algorithms, text and the identity of trees. This research took place in the contexts of the Brussels art organisations Constant, Fo.am, De Pianofabriek; and Algolit, an artistic working group on F/LOSS code and text that meets monthly in Brussels.
By combining sensuous and technical tools, she gives form to stories that live where the physical and the virtual meet.
