Landscape and Computer-Generated Imagery

Panel Discussion and Screening

14 November 2019

In conjunction with the exhibition Topographic Resolutions II at local artist-run initiative Kuiper Projects, the IMA and Kuiper presented a panel discussion and screening that considered the relationship between landscape and computer-generated imagery, both in contemporary art and wider culture.

Curator Kyle Weise and artists Baden Pailthorpe and Kathryn Brimblecombe-Fox discuss their relationships to digital depictions of landscape and its entanglement with militarism, a theme also found across the late filmmaker Harun Farocki’s practice.

The discussion was followed by a screening of one of Farocki’s final films, Parallel I-IV (2012-14, 45 mins) which incorporates found footage including that from video games The Legend of Zelda and Grand Theft Auto V to comment on the genre of computer animation and the history of style in computer graphics.
