Black Sun / Postcards from After the Singularity



“This work comes from a series of studies that try to recreate, in an abstract digital fashion, elements of the natural world that I am attracted to. I am drawn to the idea of the Pastoral in the sense of an idealised natural landscape. This works transplants that into an imagined future where the earth is barren and whatever remains of our consciousness exists only digitally. What electronic vistas might we gaze on in such a future? What postcards might we send?

Presented as windows into a future world, the piece invites the viewer to tap on the glass.”

This interactive piece was commissioned by DAS for Belfast Culture Night 2015. Changes in the procedurally generated environment and audio were triggered by passing revellers tapping on a piezo attached to the large glass window the piece was back projected on to.
