This work is a real-time video projection of point-cloud data streaming from a three-dimensional camera installed in an outdoor location. The video displayed consists of over 250,000 individual points, creating a 3D model of a living stand of trees. The color of the individual pixels shifts from blue to red to green in respect to their relative distance from the camera. This color shift illustrates the dynamic depth of the three-dimensional field giving the scene an artificial appearance and producing a formal contrast between the natural forms and the digital system collecting the data. As it monitors and collects real-time data from this location, the system relays an incomplete physical representation of a dynamic living landscape and fluid environmental conditions in digital form.
