Artist Projects

Noplace


Marek Walczak , Martin Wattenberg

Noplace is an interactive installation and website that aggregates utopias into a shared vision of paradise. The artists have developed software that takes data, images and text from individuals via the web and uses these feeds to create virtual structures. These structures expand as utopias are added to the project. In the final installation, projected shadows on the gallery walls represent the architecture that’s evolved from the data, creating a physical browser that viewers can manipulate and transform with a wave of their hands.
