Lotte Hardeman (1993) is an artist working in Amsterdam (NL) currently specialized in film and installation Hardeman focuses on increasing awareness of the human relationship with the natural world. She proposes the the idea of creating new realities by embracing the fact that the natural landscape surrounding us is already in a stage of simulation and with this knowledge create a newly simulated environment as a form of hyperreality. Finding inspiration in extreme natural occurrences, outer space and other realities such as VR, hallucination and storytelling. The natural world is not pristine nor original, it is a hyperreality, the artificiality of which should be embraced. In order to foster intimate connection with simulated environments, she creates new landscapes revolving around uncontrollable processes in which one can retreat or reflect.
