Contextural Maps

Arts Practice

Project Overview

The artifacts of lidar scanning reveal an artificial but intelligent noise. A context, a contexture – images captured between physical and digital space.

These images are texture maps built by AI processes in order to wrap digitised versions of our physical environments in digital space. We don’t usually see these images as they are secret intermediate souvenirs of reality-building process.

But this process simulates our own fragmented way of building our realities. Our brain captures only fragments, sparse physiological outputs that are interpreted by the brain to become emotion, become belief only through context.

From these sparse inputs we improvise reason, improvise our beliefs. We build our realities from improvisations, of improvisations, of improvisations.
