le nouveau monde

Computer program, 2016

le nouveau monde is a computer program that tries to remake the world, or at least, its cartographic imagery. Using a photographic planisphere produced by satellite, he redistributes the continents and oceans, forming archipelagos under a sea of clouds. New areas appear randomly on the map at varying speed. The rearrangement that mimics loading map data never ends, making the program both utopian and deceptive, opening up the world's borders to elusive new forms.
