Tales From the City (1 minute)

The camera ‘flies’ the viewer through contrasting aerial, ground-level and subterranean-type spaces. There is no conventional narrative as such: More the chaotic and multi-sensory contemporary city, processed through memory and via on-line spaces. ‘Tales from the City (1 minute)’ features 3D models textured with the artist’s own photographic snapshots captured whilst walking through the urban environment. Also, appropriated visuals borrowed from on-line mapping applications such as (Google) Street View, and Earth. The project takes the form of 3D collage in rapid motion, using freely available software to generate highly saturated, complex surfaces and forms.
