The Deep Field (Trilogy) Part One: Initial Conditions (v1).
Screened at UN/GREEN. Naturally Artificial Intelligences
In Part One: Initial Conditions, the viewer is led through three visually described deep field locations shot by Neal White and Jol Thoms in Utah, USA and Siberia, Russia. All are recognisable as either having scientific or artistic context, set within vast and remote landscapes.
What is less apparent is that two of the locations (Mullard Cosmic Ray Laboratory / Fly Eye Camera, Great Basin in Utah - shot by White, and the Lake Baikal Deep Neutrino Observatory in Siberia - shot by Thoms) are landscape-scale cameras whose tasks are to detect speculative matter (Cosmic Rays, Neutrinos) passing almost undetected through our planet, whilst the third location documents Getty Museum archivists undertaking basic aerial surveillance of land art (Robert Smithson Spiral Jetty, Utah, shot by White). The narrator addresses these landscapes as places in which the deep field engages with the challenges of scalar, temporal and spatial ranges.
