So much had been lost to the inertia of industrial progress. In the information age, the world sees artists and architects struggling to restore disappearing townships, historical buildings and waning places of culture. Alongside them scientists struggle to make discoveries of de-extinction, or are rethinking processes of the past. By doing so they are widening the understanding of ourselves. In the unprecedented times of a global pandemic; cultural, research, and networking events the world over have been cancelled or postponed. In this online exhibition, we connect scientists, curators, writers, and artists, asking why revival is so important to them. What is it that has been lost that they are endeavouring to regain?
