The Latin America Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence warmly invites you to celebrate Joseph Michael‘s Amazon – Raised Up Sky, by attending his national artist talk tour.

Amazon – Raised Up Sky is an augmented reality artwork that explores the interconnectivity of humans and nature, a ground-breaking fusion of art and science placing the viewer in the heart of the Amazonian rainforest. Through conversations with scientists, artists and indigenous leaders Michael explores our physical, biological, and cultural link to trees.

Experience the augmented reality work in development and watch a short documentary following his process in this talk with Joseph Michael.
