WORLDING Keynote at OpenDocLab Public Lecture Series presents
FRAMERATE: Pulse of the Earth
A five year exploration of LiDAR storytelling
as a climate research, scientific dataset & artwork.
November 7, 2023, 12 noon – 1:30 PM ET
UK-based ScanLAB use their craft as a way to bear witness to landscapes in flux- collaborating with scientists, dancers, journalists, playwrights and musicians on evocative and meaningful stories. ScanLAB experiments with scanning technology across various creative mediums including films, VR, theatre, online, immersive art installations and more.
The conversation will focus around FRAMERATE: Pulse of the Earth, an immersive, environmental artwork which uses timelapse LiDAR scanning to reveal landscape scale alterations caused by human-centred industry and the immense forces of nature. This keynote will explore the R&D and making of the work involving local landscape photographers across the United Kingdom. How R&D test datasets are becoming the focus of peer reviewed papers in Nature and how the project was designed and produced with sustainability principles in mind. And we’ll explore how these breathtaking visuals and the way in which the audience are invited to experience them tells multiple stories about the climate crisis and humanity’s impact on the planet.
Matt Shaw (ScanLAB co-founder) and Anetta Jones (senior documentary producer) will discuss Framerate in the context of the studio’s award winning work spanning over a decade.
Registration for the zoom livestream is now open here.
