Reinterpreted Digital Ecologies – A Series of Images:
The source image is an aerial shot of Iceland’s rivers. The digital interpretations should display the forces which make the topography in the original picture so interesting.
Each cell is stretched along the y-axis and rotated to portray the currents and flow lines of the river.
The original picture is a shot of a melting iceberg. The digital interpretations are supposed to capture the specific aesthetics of the thawing block. The rotation in the ice turns into a half open room and the melting texture transforms into a spatial section with an arrangement of openings.
The source picture is a collage of 3 different photos. The digital interpretations have more of an experimental approach. Each voxel is a modified cube showcasing an artificial cell, capable of building larger structures. By scaling the cells, the “tentacles” vary in length.
