  • Aspects of Gaia: Digital Pathways Across the Whole Earth at Ars Electronica
    325 × 198
The installation is a 2-level
schematization of this telematic Gaia. One level is presented
in tents, with computer graphic images contributed by networkers
around the world, and which can be further manipulated by
participants in the tents. Each tent provides a "Bird's-Eye"
view from above, with different kinds of interaction. The
second level is a tunnel, representing the inner earth.
Participants propel themselves, on their backs, on a small
rail-car, down a tunnel which presents thoughts, comments, and
ideas about the earth on LED signs, which have been submitted by
networkers from around the world. These signs can be
ever-changing as networkers continue to input new ideas.
