Artist Statement:


    Adapted from Lenz by Georg Buchner

    Atmoscape is an experimental cinematic adaptation of the 1835 novella Lenz by George Buchner. Atmoscape interactively accompanies the protagonist as he traverses a spectrum of interconnected dream worlds generated through an Artificially Intelligent particle visualisation system, ranging from worlds composed by the microscopic particles of his body, through to worlds created by the macroscopic particles of the atmosphere as he floats 30,000 kilometres above the earth.

    Buchner, best known for his revolutionary drama Woyzeck, was also a biologist and one of the first scientists to argue that all things are interconnected, constituted as they are by the same primary matter, namely particles.

Each world a door that opens unexpectedly onto the next.
