If we consider that the new media provides a wider and more liberal sharing of information than public space, we can observe that the new media possesses a greater expanse of space, which derives from real world. As e compare these two spaces, we can see that the new media is far more organic and variable whereas the public space is shaped and limited by state and authority.
We might envisage the aforementioned spaces as an entwined and layered structure. Without doubt, public space constitutes the central point of departure. What manner of form would be achieve, if we attempted to physically mould this abstract spaces that have no physical substance? Some data might be consulted during the formation of this form. For instance, the information concerning “the proportion of resources and methods of data circulation”.
Can we reverse this physical data visualization, which is produced out of non-physical information? By covering a physical surface with a digital layer, can we soften the concept of reality between the “physical” and “digital”?
Digital data sharing; reification of the real-world space and value of the new media and coating the resultant parametric surface with a digital layer, by employing ISOHIPS mapping method, which provides physical data on the surface forms. Combining an information, which is originally physical, with a non-physical information (isohips-digital media) and re-digitizing the physical result; an audio-visual installation that questions and aims for the entwining of these two concepts.
