‘A Virtual Bathymetric’ premiered at Piksel Festival, Norway, 2016. It is a small and self-contained version of the faux-holo idea originally shown at White Night (Nuit Blanche), Melbourne and QUT Art Museum, Brisbane, as ‘Cartology Apology’. It is an experimental projection sculpture.
Piksel festival is a festival for sustainable digital art that has been produced through open-source software. The video created and shown through this sculpture traced popular shipping routes, particularly in the North Sea, but also globally. In projecting through the sculpture, the line of light seemed to morph into a topography. Original artist statement:
