In the context of “City Scanning” Synchrodogs created a series of photographs about the relationship between human and nature. The project is an abstract reflection on the subject of endless interdependence, a kind of visualization of human invasion into wild nature. At the same time, artists sought to achieve a direct proportional effect — invading the urban landscape of the city, incorporated nature in the urban environment.

Wave Pool’s “Interlace” project aims to connect disparate community groups in order to envision a better future. The project takes the form of a series of conversations, videos and temporary floating sculptures in order to create a more connected and aligned city. The sculptures will be woven from barley straw and their decomposition will result in the killing of algae in a local pond. During the weaving workshops, participants will be asked to release something negative and make space for the future of the city. “What do you want the future of Ivano Frankivsk to look like?” will be the guiding question and topic of discussion while residents are weaving.

Based on previous studies and curation of MetaLab-Team a future vision of the district was created. Within the project an international team was trying to outline both short time and longtime solutions. The key points of the project are: integration of the Promprylad.Renovation project into the separate district and linking it to the city center; strengthening the connections within the district, getting access to the river in the east of the city, underlining the importance of historical buildings, crossing the rails with a bridge on the east side, activation of the suburban train station “Bystrytsia” and transformation of the industrial area into more useful and active place.
