Selected by Museum of Modern Art Warsaw

In Cyber Wedding to the Brine Shrimpcyber-nympho artist-brides, Ewelina Jarosz and Justyna Górowska have married the brine shrimp. The brides encourage others to love, honor and cherish the resilient brine shrimp and learn about the perils they and their ecosystem face.

The vows to the brine shrimp of the Great Salt Lake were made on the Rozel Point peninsula near the “Spiral Jetty” (1970), a land art work by Robert Smithson.

The digital ecosexual ceremony was the first more-than-human wedding event in the world using Augmented Reality to create the brine shrimp brides/grooms out of digital air. Every person using an Android smartphone is able to enjoy being in digital nature and explore the posthuman community in augmented reality thanks to Artemia App.

Cyber Wedding to the Brine Shrimp is inspired by the ecosexual weddings by Annie Sprinkle & Beth Stephens.
