Opening Electrified III
Part of the TRACK city festival, the Electrified project opens 31 August in the Citadelpark in Ghent. As the third edition of Electrified, 'The Responsive City' consists of three projects that uncover hidden spots in the city. Circumstance has created an invisible movie set against the backdrop of the city; Kaffe Mathews takes visitors on an urban bicycle opera through the city's streets; and FoAM immerses participants in Borrowed Scenery, where the responsivity of the city is entangled with our botanical neighbours. FoAM's excursion into Borrowed Scenery begins with a vegetal picnic in the Kiosk of the Citadelpark, serving historical and contemporary plant dishes, edible stories and electrolytes.
