Created by Luiz Zanotello at the University of the Arts, Bremen, The New Velocity is a machine designed to plot the phantom Sandy Island using digital as a new analogy for its existence. The project investigates a charting error that persisted in cartographic maps even after the advent of digital media. It speculates how data and physical phenomena are entangled, and how in contemporaneity, the two have the same weight under digital media.

Series of works exploring the subject of drawing images in the space around the earth using latitude, longitude and altitude as a coordinate system.
Picture the Sky is a project by Karolina Sobecka in an attempt to reverse the process of satellite imagery to where we, as one, become a very large ‘sociotechnological apparatus’ looking up at the sky, an infrastructure for our technology. Take part in the project this Saturday!
Nimbes is an audio-visual installation designed for 360º immersive environments exploring boundaries between natural and artificial, and questioning the solitary nature of perception and observation and their relationship to both the cosmic and human scale.
Created by Marc Faasse, Playground NDSM is an interactive photomontage that includes 7 years of photographs taken by Marc and mapped on the googlemaps.
