Hot Planet is a series of digital landscapes inspired by dreams and data visualization. Global warming data was used as an artistic seed for the star constellations and matrices. Using programmatic manipulation, a library of iterative elements were created to compose the final pieces.
CGI has brought us a new medium for depicting non-real or dream-inspired visualizations with great detail – down to the minute reliefs in the texture of virtual objects. 3D visualization technologies are particularly fascinating in this regard. CGI enables more than a neo-surrealism and perhaps opens a new world within a medium, suited to a dual approach of traditional artistic and programmatic experimentation.
