Transient Topographies

Commissioned by the National Sculpture Factory

Transient Topographies is a durational interactive exploration of changing landscapes. It uses satellite mapping data and machine learning to create new generative large-scale topographic projections. Looking specifically at the landscapes of the edges of Europe and the coastal line, creating new imagined landscapes that unfold in real-time.

The work seeks to use digital immersion as a catalyst to connect us with the generative landscapes and see all that is around us.

The name is borrowed from a conference of the same name curated by Anne Sofia Karhio.
