MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN
Callum Ross – You can’t see the mountain from the peak
Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo
In the present day, the evolution of the quality of CGI forces us to question our relationship to digital representations of our world and the impact they have on us. This project explores the current ambiguity of the digital image through an interactive short film based around mountain imagery, used for its symbolism of an everlasting geological phenomenon, but which paradoxically, are some of the fastest images to generate. Through the use of a smartphone, we navigate this variable experience between real and virtual, gradually questioning the reality of the situation that is shown.
