ALTERED EARTH : a contemporary art app created by the artist Doug Aitken
The ALTERED EARTH App takes the viewer on a surreal and hallucinogenic journey. ALTERED EARTH was created entirely in one region, the expansive Camargue area in Southern France. ALTERED EARTH creates a distinctly modern exploration of landscape and the space between man, nature, and technology.
The Camargue’s mysterious quality is the setting for ALTERED EARTH : a naturally sculpted land emitting a rough beauty and unique individuality. This is a setting where German bunkers are being re-claimed by migratory birds and African winds spread the Mediterranean Sea over shallow lagoons, revealing salt mines that appear like crystal landscapes from another world.
ALTERED EARTH uses this unique landscape to explore a new expression of the physical world. This artwork reflects on our relation to local and global geography and expands the concept of “place” into a limitless digital universe.
Within this App you are empowered to create your own journey through a mysterious and ever-changing world utilizing different forms of media. By changing the structure of imagery, seeing it in different configurations, you are able to project your own story.
ALTERED EARTH explores multi-channel film, literature, and three-dimensional installation space.
“There is no hierarchy to how images and sequences can be strung together. It’s a open experience that will change every time and be unique for every viewer.” – Doug Aitken
App artwork by Doug Aitken, commissioned and produced by the LUMA Foundation for the Parc des Ateliers, Arles France, designed by The Luxury of Protest and developed by Meri Media.
What's New in Version 2.0
This expanded 2.0 version adds many layers of new research and functionality to the app. It is built around a newly improved navigation system that allows the viewer to explore connections between the history of the region and the artwork in a nonlinear fashion. There are new 3D viewing modules, zoomable maps, added sound-based features and more.
Looks fantastic on iPhone too!!!
Land art, meets video art, meets digital art. Stunning experience!
I absolutely love this app. Beautiful visuals & soundscapes. Bravo!
