Public Art located at Centro de Creación Contemporánea de Andalucía, Cordoba, Spain
Travelling, is a media installation and a temporary public artwork located at Centro de Creación Contemporánea de Andalucía, Cordoba, Spain. The animated video screened at the exterior LED wall of the contemporary art centre was captured from the online experiment platform called High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV), which is part of the International Space Station (ISS) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The HDEV is a live steaming platform, continuously collecting images of the Earth from the ISS since 2014. Therefore, the video on the large scale LED wall is about the pure imagery of the shadow of clouds and other natural phenomenons from the floating perspective, the camera from the satellite showed the view of astronaut, more even, could be the ideal vision form the god.
The authority of technology has re-shaped our imagination about the fact of the world where we existed. I question if the ambiguity of light and shadow of this large-scale public work will provide a venting moment for us to re-imagine beyond the factual statement and physical limitation, bringing us into a much deeper universe within our imaginative world poetically. As the result, this large-scale public art became visible vehicles that lead the audiences to the unknown world through meditative moments in the public space with the sense of helplessness living in a milieu of exploding data yet kept esoteric by authorities.
