Atlas of Predictive Cities

We live in an age of unprecedented quantification – never before has the world, and our lives, been subject to so much probing, measurement and analysis, enabling a shift towards automation and machine learning. Multi-sensory, hyperconnected, algorithmic systems are bringing sweeping changes to the urban fabric, and to all our daily lives. Recognising the urgent need for a new visual language to represent the contemporary, data-driven ‘predictive city’, the artist developed a hybrid method using photogrammetry, volumetric filmmaking and code-based manipulation. Through its auratic and poetic use of computational imaging technologies, the moving image piece questions the limitations and errors of algorithmic representations.
