Distant Images and Tiny Worlds

Alexander Stewart, Julien Nolin and Thao Lan Nguyen Le.

 Based on 3D scan data and personal experiences of a ruin in the hinterlands of Canada, “Distant Images and Tiny Worlds” takes the willing participant on a virtual journey. The “Carbide Wilson” estate was built upon the fallacy of reigning in nature for human endeavor. The exposure to the powerful forces of the environment ultimately decayed and over-grew the structure, returning its energies to the flow; its intervention in the space revealed as a small speck in a larger picture. The viewer is taken blindly along the tenuous thread that connects the multiple virtual realities depicting this story. The result is an abstract experience, animating the narrative of a traversal from one point in space and time to another.
