SPECTRUM 7

In Joe Hamilton’s video work Spectrum 7 multi coloured landscape scenes create a flowing sequence that emulates the scanning motion of orbiting satellite sensors constantly sweeping over the earth’s surface. The landscapes include appropriated footage from nature documentaries and satellite imagery from publicly available datasets that are coloured adjusted to resemble false colour images commonly used in the analysis of remote sensing data. The video is a new representation of landscape that strikes a balance between the human eye and machine, and questions conventional notions of colour, scale and structure in the world around us.
