activation:fields will install a sensor network composed of 45 Simple Sensor Portals distributed throughout the site. The goal of the sensor network is to measure the quality, intensity and location of energy exchanges in environment.
In activation:fields, data can encode the form of the environment using computational logic. Design through generative processes is fed by data-sets.
activation:fields relies on the HYPOTHESIS that the environment can be represented as a function of the data flowing through it.
activation:fields’ tools function by enhancing visibility; they reveal that which cannot otherwise be seen.
Project images are organized according to their geospatial attributes; a ‘mash-up’ of pixel and locational data.
An incomplete list of projects by other artists and architects to inform activation:fields.
The Bolinas site has a long history serving as an exceptional site of scientific, medical and social research.
A geologic and geographic look at the Bolinas site, including the lagoon and the peninsula.
Bolinas lies west of the San Andreas Fault, which runs the length of Bolinas Lagoon and continues northward through Olema Valley and Tomales Bay.
