Scott Fitzgerald Isopleth, 2014


Projection, custom software, computer, camera


Scott Fitzgerald’s work explores the transi- tion between the physical and digital world, using new technologies as expressive tools. Fitzgerald’s piece, Isopleth, or “equal in quantity” is being shown for the first time at ArtsWestchester. Isopleth refers to a term often used in geography and meteorology describing a line on a map that connects places with similar attributes. The large wall projection reacts to the viewer, the image adapting and changing as viewers move in front of it. He combines notions of film, video, interactivity and play in a work that is constantly changing.
