SENSING LANDSCAPE: TOPOLOGIES II
This is a single-channel version of an animation created for a VR experience.
What does the underside of a map look like? What lies behind it? This topological experiment tests the limits of a radar-sensed dataset of a landscape through a series of interference patterns and fractal geometries. By borrowing techniques from scientific data analysis, the VR expresses a unique aesthetic challenge inviting the viewer to reconsider the relationship between map and image. Developed through an instructional training with artist Marc Downie at the University of Chicago, in the environment Field by OpenEndedGroup.
The sound component for the piece is part of the work of composer and performer Antoni Rayzhekov, as part of his project Organic Oscillators, that sonifies topographies and data ranging from the microscopic to the cosmic scale.
