Holographic Domes on Snow
These eight megastructures present new modes of engaging with physical-digital space. From the mazelike "Voroni Megastructure" to the hivelike "Warrens," these buildings propose the question of instantaneous vastness: what does it mean, architecturally and experientially, when digital spaces allow for the rapid production of truly vast and monumental architecture? These pieces are a sideways-proposal for NAC (and other virtual platforms) to keep considering the question of vastness and immensity. When we are thinking, in the future, about spaces for the containment of digital art, those pieces of art could be embedded in much larger worlds, in much greater conversation with their context. Rather than the gallery being our skeumorphic art container/context, we should instead consider it the landscape (a kind of new digital earth art). Many of these works are inspired by Tsutomu Nihei's "Blame!" whose giant city becomes a new kind of nature.
