HOW NATURAL IS OUR HUMAN HABITAT?
We hear the wind blow, feel the rain on our skin. Do we experience this
as nature or as natural elements in an environment defined by mankind?
People cherish an idea of what nature is and the world should look
like; our environment is adjusted to fit that image. Are we aware of
this ongoing representation of nature? We manipulate biotopes and
interfere with living and non-living ecosystems. We design parks, zoos and aquaria. Do we still have a
choice how natural our human habitats can be?
During the lab 'Climate as Game Changer' we will use all our senses to
better understand our environment and discuss what conditions we are
In 2018 organiseert Satellietgroep een serie Zeelabs i.h.k.v. Feest aan Zee. Elk Zeelab is een ontmoeting van kunstenaars en vormgevers met wetenschappers en publiek over cultuur en natuur, kust en klimaat.
Met dank aan de gemeente Den Haag, Feest aan Zee en Border Sessions.
Tijdens Climate as Game Changer ontmoet je kunstenaars, vormgevers,
wetenschappers en lokale experts. Climate as Game Changer vindt buiten
plaats tijdens Border Sessions. Onder de bomen (binnenplaats Kerkplein
11, Den Haag) installeren we een aantal Landschapsbars met
veldonderzoek. Midden in de installatie gaan kunstenaars, ontwerpers,
wetenschappers met deelnemers aan de slag rondom de vraag: Hoe
natuurlijk is onze menselijke leefomgeving?
In dit tweede Zeelab gebruiken we al onze zintuigen om de leefomgeving
beter te begrijpen en zullen we discussiëren over welke condities we

Artists collective Satellietgroep (The Hague, 2006) explores through
arts the social and ecological impact of the sea and coastal transitions
on cities, people, communities and environments, and vice versa the
influence of mankind on coastal transitions and climate change in The
Netherlands and abroad. Our aim is to enhance public and professional
awareness. Satellietgroep hosts artists in
residents for artistic fieldwork, collaborate with locals and experts and
develop new concepts and works that reflect the resilience of
coexistence of man and water, in past, present and future.
Long term projects are 'Badgast' - artist in residency program at The
Hague/Scheveningen (2009-2014), 'Now Wakes The Sea', the international
exchange residency program in collaboration with international cultural
partners (since 2012). Since 2014 Satellietgroep develops the first artistic research on the Zandmotor, the newest innovation on coastal protection, called Building with Nature. In these programs artist in residencies are used as a research method to enable artists, designers, students and scientists to do fieldwork and to work on site with local partners, coastal communities and experts in order to map out and research the current status of coastal transitions and to generate new narratives and perspectives. The programs function as an alternative source for collecting. New concepts and works are developed that we connect and contextualize with reference works for public events like expeditions, exhibitions, workshops and presentations at expert conferences, often outside the artistic domain. Artist in residents are invited to critically explore and visualize the zones of coexistence of man and water and reveal different perspectives. By interconnecting coastal communities, arts and science we share local knowledge on global level to gain sustainable insights on coastal transitions that transcend local and national issues.
