Perceptual Geography is a multimedia project of interactive multimedia installations, short films and digital prints. Using custom software to create spatial media environments from numerous images, sounds and videos of urban and natural areas, largely in Southern California, the project investigates how specific geographical areas change over time and opens a window onto the creative process.
The interactive multimedia installations immerse viewers in navigable 3D environments, where sights and sounds appear over time in virtual locations corresponding to the approximate real-world locations where the images were taken. The digital prints are composite images captured while navigating the virtual environments, while the video works are compositions made by editing together videos captured while navigating the environments.
