A stylistic scenography exploring an algorithmic interpretation of NYC’s abandoned Brooklyn Navy Yard. Through a process of stereo-photogrammetry we generated a series of 3D artefacts which interpret this already captivating historic site into an abstract and alien landscape.

These digital ruins became the site for a simulated visual exploration of its shapes and crevices, revealing its photographic qualities as the light playfully reveals its architecture. As a collaboration with fine artist Natacha Mankowski, the work incorporates elements of her practice though mysterious and cryptographic patterns. A complete rework of the project has been provided with a soundscape by Micro Talk inspired by the Dune project.
