El Patrol is proud to announce that its Brazilian branch will be based in one of Florianópolis’ most ambitious innovation centers, the “Sapiens Parque.” Designed to foster the convergence of knowledge, ideas, and projects to boost economic, social, technological, and environmental development – Sapiens Parque is an excellent location for our agency. Their agenda of creating “differentiated space that inspire the concept of “urban lab,” which seeks to combine innovation and sustainability by optimizing the use of resources as practical solutions in physical systems, communication, sustainable buildings etc.” matches perfectly with el Patrol’s philosophy. Moreover, Sapiens’ description: “Science, art and environment work together to generate innovative and successful experiences” is almost a blueprint of our project FLUX Art Festival. Known as “innovation incubators,” technological parks bring forward the emergence of Santa Catarina as Brazil’s “Silicon Valley.” With our cultural initiatives, we hope to contribute to a creative environment.
The partnership with Sapiens Parque includes a domicile for the construction of a research laboratory, where el Patrol’s artistic contribution to FLUX Art Festival can be developed and tested. The interdisciplinary project“ PLANET A” is designed as a Swiss-German-Brazilian collaboration and seeks the interplay between art and science, where modern technology combines with an artistic vision of the future of nutrition. The creation of various operative algae sculptures is a crucial factor for the artists’ aim to address prospective questions on sustainability, urban food production, and related possibilities in space travel.
