His work, backed by world-renowned specialised scientists and organisations, forms a perfect combination of science and technology. Through the use of organic and digital materials, data, sensors, trees, kinetic movement, big data and recycled plastics, Biersteker creates large interactive sculptures that simulate the behaviour of plant beings through communicative experiences that are easily accessible both intellectually and technologically.
With his work Wither, currently shown at Barbican Centre in London as part of the exhibition Our Time On Earth, Biersteker produces a digital rainforest to show the acceleration of deforestation in the Amazon. In Econtinuum, soon to be seen at Le Pavillon Namur in Belgium, he collaborates with the pioneer expert in plant neurobiology Stefano Mancuso to show the communication between plant organisms through the use of sensors.
His last work released, MB>CO2 is another awareness piece in which Biersteker reveals the real damage of our Internet data translated into puffs of CO2 that are blown into a living biotope. Trying to prove that it is about time that we become conscious of the climate disaster that creeps up on us.
