“Open Air” is a project produced by media artist Grayson Cooke in collaboration with painter Emma Walker, and with the music of The Necks. Through a partnership with Geoscience Australia, the project also uses Landsat satellite images of Australia from Digital Earth Australia.
This project seeks to creatively image the forces that shape the Earth. It uses aerial imaging on two vastly divergent scales to produce two different material manifestations of these forces. Firstly, the project features motion-controlled aerial photography of the paintings and processes of Emma Walker. Secondly, set against these painted landscapes are time-lapse images of Australia as seen by Landsat satellites.
