This project is based on the concept of ART+COM's protracted project
titled "T-Vision". T-Vision is a system which enables participant
to travel around the virtual earth--generated out of topographical
data and satellite images--with a special user interface. The cloud
satellite images are delivered in real time via Internet. In the exhibition,
the project does not proceed only to the original target of the system,
"Present Earth"; it proceeds also to "Past Earth".
T-Vision's interface visualizes a voyage through time-series when
participant moves on toward the particular location (Potsadamer Platz
in Berlin, for this exhibition). The work employs satellite images
and 3D architectural models to target two aspects of telepresence,
namely, the concepts of "remote" and "past".
