A Synesthete's Atlas
Real time cartographic improvisations using projected, manipulated digital maps by Eric Theise, in live collaboration with improvising musicians and other time-based artists . A visual wash of street grids, land masses, water bodies, and curiosities from built and natural environments. Saturated colors. The subtlest of tints. Glitches in crowdsourced data. Jittery zooms and pans. Orphaned information and free-floating symbology.
Performances typically last 50 minutes and occasionally introduce strobing effects that may affect photosensitive viewers.
There's additional information, including video, in the performances section of my site and there's a larger video archive at Vimeo.
