Jolliffe, Daniel & Robert, Jocelyn – “Ground Station” – [Surrey Art Gallery]


Canadian media artists Jolliffe and Robert deliver a unique creation of beauty here. They wrote an algorithm that tranforms global positioning system (GPS) information from satellites inside a computer and then outputs the data into an electronic Disklavier piano. Although they say it’s not about the music, the resulting notes together make for a surprisingly pleasant aural experience. Their intention is to show how our technological world affects us (thus the use of a technology originally created for military use). Listen to this and meditate on the meaning of location, both in space and in time.
