According to most of theology preaching, life began at a Garden. Heavenly, beautiful, and free of temptations. Nature and Humans starred not only the first coexisting relationship, as well as the first Agon. The word inherited from Ancient Greek ἀγών proves that breaking boundaries of being an expression of or giving a tangible or visible form shall cause interferences. Decades later, we allow another protagonist to rise - Technology. In times of post-human post-media relationships, it is no longer acceptable to see coexisting as binary; technology has given us another seed in our Gardens. Relaying on my personal journey of self-sowing discussions about how entangled each one of these three seemly distinct categories are, Garden of Agon (a non-binary embodiment) is a modern allegory of roots, desires and thoughts collected to repel the viewer of entering a Garden. Here, Nature becomes Technology as it germinates connections within its components moreover Technology embodies Human as it leads you to interfere as you get closer. As a complex and visually intriguing installation, Garden of Agon provokes and expels - We must cultivate our own garden, as Voltaire said.
