August projectioning-diagramming 2014

teasing out environmental alignments, or, "digital surveying"

 

proposition / investigation:
      how do touristic-style photographs inform our sensing and aligning with an environment?
       (photographic landscape panoramas)

 

Projecting the extracts from the net-artwork environment-movement onto the wall, I decided to focus on points of movement:
- the scrolling input,
- the 'potential' movement of the glacier,
- and the overlaps of the photographs I had stitched together as a panorama




This image above traces the overlaps of photographic documentation of the site. Where one image overlays another, a join appears.
A movement that is bodily--it (re)presents the movements of the lens, the camera,
the body taking the photo as they pivot to capture the site.




This forms the interactive projection: moving-with-glacier





 



Another version - interactive projection: moving-with-himalaya













At times, the sketched movement traces don't align with the photographic panorama:





 

On a different approach
Still on the thematic of instructional diagrams... I began trying to draw points of interest in environments:


 

 

 

 

More to come soon...
