A Potential Environment
"Steam-Boat off a Harbour's Mouth Making Signals in Shallow Water, and going by the Lead. The Author was in this Storm on the Night the "Ariel" left Harwich"
J. M. W. Turner, 1842
This project explores the construction of new artefacts through the composition of data (sets of information used to measure and define environmental attributes) and a variety of objects.
In doing so, it aims to build new environments - which, in computer sciences are defined as a confined space wherein objects develop relationships with one another.
For the composition of this new whole, the processing, data and objects within a given environment - along with my design practice that acts as an interpretational tool - are all elements that take an active role. The whole that is sought here gives emphasis to the importance of context, without which the production of narrative becomes difficult.
The outcome is in the form of a spatial display based on their topological relations and also my personal interpretations of J.M.W. Turner’s story.
A manual accompanies the display.
