Flag (Thames)

Artist: John Gerrard
video | Simulation projection | 2016

A segment of the river Thames near the Palace of Westminster is simulated as an algorithmic representation. The river’s colours are digitally recreated; buildings and trees on the banks are present as re ections. A simulated gasoline spill refracts light to create a vivid prismatic eld, an endlessly shifting shape. The work unfolds over a solar cycle, 365 days and nights.
