description and presentation title:
At the Iceland inside and out workshop Even Westvang and Timo Arnall
collaborated on a project looking at ways of contextualising photographs
by time and geography. We chose to shift the balance of representation
away from location, towards image and time. This prototype has proved
that many technical challenges are solvable, and given us a working
space to develop more visualisations, and interactive environments,
using this as a tool for thinking about wider design issues in geo-referenced
photography. We are really excited by the sense of ‘groundedness’
the visualisation gives over the images, and the way in which spatial
relationships develop between images.
Bio: Timo Arnall is a designer currently living between London,
Oslo and Helsinki. His work spans many media – from broadcast design
and filmmaking, to installation and site-specific artworks, through
interaction design and information architecture to photography and
experimental image work.
