Mersea Circle: Masaki Fujihata (Japan)
29th November 2003 - 7th February 2004
firstsite gallery, Colchester, U.K.


firstsite present Mersea Circle a 3 dimensional virtual video installation developed through tracking people flow around Mersea island using G.P.S. devices (Global positioning Systems) and video cameras.

Fujihata has developed Mersea Circle, an artwork that tracks people flow around the island using GPS devices (Global Positioning System) and video cameras. Just as the tides and weather shape Mersea Island's identity, so too does the movement of residents and visitors.

The final video installation maps these public journys into a 3D environement and rediscovers this remarkable part of the Essex coastline.

this is of specially interest for those involved in nature and ecology
