On EP #4 ‘The Earth’ DLUX is joined by the artists behind "Open Air". A visual setting of the 2013 album "Open" by Australian cult band The Necks. It is also a form of creative earth imaging; it combines timelapse Landsat satellite imagery of Australia, with motion-controlled aerial photography of the paintings and processes of Australian painter Emma Walker. Together, these two vastly different forms of aerial earth imaging combine to produce a complex picture of a changing planet.
The Constellations is a podcast exploring art projects that operate at the intersections of science and technology. Each month we will focus on a different project: from bio-feedback art that helps kids manage pain to apps that simulate chronic pain and artists who use science to make the stars of our galaxy sing, join us live in the audience, or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and never miss an episode.
On Episode #3 of The Constellations Podcast we talk to the team behind ‘A Galaxy of Suns’ an app for your smart phone that connects you with the unseen motions of our galaxy. Created by artist Michaela Gleave, composer Amanda Cole and programmer Warren Armstrong, A Galaxy of Suns gives your smart phone the ability to ‘play’ the skies, turning each star into music, as it rises above the horizon in front of you.
