Animated short film, commissioned by jotta for Intel‘s REMASTERED series on art history masterpieces. A contemporary reinterpretation of JMW Turner‘s painting “Rain, Steam and Speed – The Great Western Railway“. This short animation examines the concept of the Technological Singularity, the point in human progress after which predictions become increasingly difficult to formulate. Industrialization and computational innovation are re-imagined in a minimalist environment, drawing from video game and runtime aesthetics.
The Great Western Singularity was part of the onedotzero_adventures in motion 2011’s onscreen program at BFI Southbank, November 23 – 27 2011.
