︎Datum Explorer is a multi-platform project questioning how we might explore an alternative type of digital wilderness in the same contemplative mindset as we might a real landscape. It took the form of an app and a site specific installation presented at Datum Festival 2014 and Sonar Festival 2015.
︎ In July 2014 a forest in East Sussex was surveyed using a terrestrial 3D scanner and binaural recording device. This 3D dataset was re-imagined as an exploratory digital landscape - part site survey and part game environment filled with elusive animals. Game engines give the potential for non linear storytelling and 3d interaction, turning it from being a static archive to a dynamic space.
︎As part a site specific installation, the point cloud was projection mapped back into its original environment to create an immersive and collective virtual experience fusing nature and data.
