I was fortunate to be awarded a funded residency, commission, and exhibition at PLAN8T in Changsha, China. PLAN8T is a prototype of vertical community living, and (fittingly) the focus of the program was to explore and conceptualise a future sustainable urban space—a space that merged technology, nature, and society. This is a complex topic that could easily plummet into an abyss of apocalyptic pessimism (the awe-inspiring inescapable complexity of the capitalist economic system, irreversible climate change, or global catastrophes), or worse, into the void of utopian optimism of futurism (space conquering humans, interstellar colonies, or technologically (re)engineered humans). I wanted to transcend the rhetoric that dominates discussions of the future and instead explore—on a semi philosophical level—the abstraction of infinite possibilities. I pursued a (nonetheless flawed) neutral middle ground—the tyranny of the Golden Mean. This meant that visually, I was interested in creating abstract landscapes that were unordered when viewed up close, yet slightly more ordered when observed from a distance—sceneries that sat somewhere between real and imagined landscapes. The aim was to emphasise the algorithmic nature of the digital terrain (pun intended).
