This is part III of the ‘Glacier Trilogy’
Rebuilding relationships with river systems
curated by UNIDEE Residency Programs and Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto’s Art Office
Inspired by the idea of the hour glass, I designed a digital system together with Sage Jenson, that simulates the emergence and melting process of glacial ice mass. Presented on panoramic screens, the visitors can observe the progression of ice, how fluvial systems come into being and how they shape landscape. The particle systems runs over a digital elevation map of a section of the Westitalian Alps. The generative video is connected to sensors that opens the digital to the natural world and environment around it. Thus, a very direct impact of humans on the environment can be experienced.
