Another Sky is a series of global scale augmented reality installations, inspired by Digital Life (i.e. the integration of digital and analogue worlds), Artificial Life and Weaving. Weaving is the beginning of modern computing – the Jacquard Loom was the first programmable object. Charles Babbage was inspired by it to attempt to build the Difference Engine and Analytical Engine. Weaving is also a Human Universal – whereas writing is not.
Each member of the Another Sky series builds on the system and technology of the previous:
- Another Sky I – a global scale sculpture that encodes every longitude and latitude on earth as a colour.
- Another Sky II – a sculpture that encodes every longitude and latitude as a colour and the height of a virtual surface.
- Another Sky III – a sculpture that encodes every longitude and latitude as a colour, a height and a digital organism that can live and die.
- Another Sky IV – a sculpture that shows a global ecosystem that migratory life that can be fed by humans.
