I'm Feeling Lucky

Real-Time Computer Animation, Generative, 4K Screen

I'm Feeling Lucky features an infinite virtual landscape that is historically and geographically ambiguous. The virtual landscape is populated with thousands of figures sourced from Google Street View. The work takes into consideration panorama paintings of the 19th century as objects of historical, cultural, and perceptual significance. Panoramas are theorized as part of the lineage of immersive media technologies. In this case, the panoramic image becomes infinite as the perspective travels across the landscape endlessly.

This work was created with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
Sound Design / Composition: Tatum Wilson
