Info
  1. The Red Earth Project is an ongoing artistic, interdisciplinary study centred on prose reflections and machine translation, drawing attention to the precarious status of non-western cultural heritage, knowledge systems and practices in the increasingly dominant Western systems of data, virtual architectures and AI technologies. This research asks how alternative cosmologies can be better represented within virtual architectures powered by probabalistic computation.

Amor Fati is a Latin phrase meaning love of fate or love of one's fate and an example of how this porject vacillates between cultures and knwoeldge systems forth across cultures. 

This works assist contemplation of the juxtaposition of dynamic mathematical infrastructures within physical matter (from living flesh to the formation of geology over time) and the immediacy of emotion and instinct, such as fear and doubt. Also contemplating how we travel over these structures when moving or migrating. See, for example, the generative flow of patterning in the fur and ever-present spherical systems from micro to macro, and not least reflected in the cow's iris.
