Exploded Views Lab
The Exploded Views Lab investigates the methods applied by Marnix de Nijs to create his interactive video artworks, Run Motherfucker Run and Exploded Views. Over three days, participants will source images, sound bites and video clips from online networks to create their own 3D data visualisation of Sydney.
This workshop investigates the methods applied by Marnix de Nijs to create his interactive video artwork, Exploded Views. His large-scale immersive video enables the viewer to physically move through 3D imagery of urban landscapes, creating a familiar, yet surreal experience. Over three days, participants will examine the increasing relevance of the internet and online networks in constructing relationships with our immediate and global environments. Particpants will use GPS tagging to compile a database of images, sound bites and video clips from online networks, such as Flickr. Through the game engine Unity, these digital files will be programmed into point clouds and developed into personal 3D data visualisations of Sydney. Unity is one of the leading platforms for 3D video game creation that enables users to intuitively develop multiplatform games. Programmers will assist participants in developing and rendering their Sydney 3D cityscapes.

Marnix de Nijs is a Dutch installation artist. He has been a pioneer in researching the experimental use of media and technologies in art, critically examining their impact on contemporary society and human perception. De Nijs’ recent interactive installations use imagery, sound and movement to reflect on technology’s ability to influence communication and cultural change. Often incorporating recorded data and responsive imagery, his large-scale video projections are completely immersive, which is reflective of his background in sculpture.
