http://www.betaspace.net.au/content/view/39/ Artist: Chris Bowman Technologists: Shigeki Amitani and Alastair Weakley Exhibition dates: 27 April â 16 June 2007 Open 10am â 5pm daily Free with entry to the Powerhouse Museum |GEO| Landscape.01 is an interactive artwork-in-progress that will transport you to Sydneyâs newest architectural attraction. The Brickpit Ring Walk - an elevated circular walkway at Sydney Olympic Park - is a viewing platform set inside the old brickpit at Homebush Bay. Visitors to the âRingâ have recorded their impressions of this historical, ecological and architecturally significant site. Through the mediums of text, sound, photography, video and GPS (Global Positioning System) co-ordinates, |GEO|Landscape.01 explores time and space as trace experiences combined to create a layered virtual environment. This early prototype explores how video sequences, selected narratives and site-specific information can be captured across two or more locations, then reconstructed by groups or individuals to create personal or collective narratives. Utilizing two interfaces designed as virtual programs, |GEO| seeks to enable visitors to control their own virtual journey around the Brickpit Ring Walk. Central to the visitorâs experience is the ability to navigate the Ring, exploring the dialogue between representation and abstraction.
