Description

Virtual Landscapes: The Embryonic Era (1980-1989)

The magical essence of natural landscapes since the dawn of man have been a source of intrigue, wonder and inspiration in art,  philosophy and literature. With each new era in civilisation, new methods of creative expression have been used by artists, designers and writers to capture the rich natural landscapes, and with the 21st century and the emergence of new interactive technologies, this innate desire is being expressed through the digital domain.

From the giant mushroom forests of Morrowind, the Archipelago islands of Zelda: Wind Waker, to the tropical underground caves of Phantasy Star Online, Virtual landscapes have enthralled, captured and engaged player imaginations for over 30 years. Virtual Landscapes is a three part series attempting to, for the first time, visually illustrate, share and critically reflect upon the unique, virtual natural landscapes within Computer & Video Games.

Virtual Landscapes: The Embryonic Era visually illustrates the emergence and rapid evolution of the virtual natural landscapes in computer & video games from 1980 to 1989. From the pixel based, block form environments of Forbidden Forest, the strange lands of Golvellius,  the eerie 'ant-farm' landscapes of Ghouls'n Ghosts  and finally to shifting interactive lands of Populous, Virtual Landscapes presents these  virtual spaces for the first time, in stunning unseen digitally enhanced. high resolution and panoramic forms.
