Hringvigur | A Time-Lapse Circumnavigation of Iceland

Evan Mather, landscape architect at AHBE Landscape Architects and award-winning filmmaker is looking for funding for his second feature film project – Hringvigur. You may remember Mather’s first feature file – From Sea To Shining Sea, a journey across the USA from the Atlantic to the Pacific. He is currently making preparations for Hringvigur, a time-lapse video and audio collage of this circumnavigation around Iceland. Mather sees the film as “using video to immerse the viewer in a landscape to achieve an experiential quality. The use of time-lapse video compresses the journey into both a manageable length and allows the viewer to observe the dynamics of shifting landscapes.”

April is World Landscape Architecture Month (not related to WLA website), and to celebrate Evan Mather has launched his Kickstarter campaign to fund Hringvigur. Please help out a fellow landscape architect by contributing to make his second film become a reality.

VIDEO | Christophe Girot, `Topology: On Sensing and Conceiving Landscape`


Harvard GSD recently posted a lecture by Christophe Girot titled “Topology: On Sensing and Conceiving Landscape”. An lecture that will intrigue students and professionals interested in Visualisation and Computer Modelling. Girot shows various projects, processes and the tools (Terrestial Laser Scanners, Point Cloud, Rhino, GIS, etc) used to create models of existing and proposed landscapes around the world.

The invention of landscape has always oscillated between a history of beliefs in nature, with its many representations, and a history of terrain measurements through various techniques of appropriation. In his talk, Christophe Girot will consider the longstanding balance between culture and its instruments for sensing and conceiving a landscape, noting that the particular representation of landscape that we hold true today has roots in the dialogue between ars and techne that has characterized every epoch. The aim of this talk and discussion is to open a window on topology’s shifting point of view with regard to this form of interdependence that will considerably affect our ability to act and perform effectively on landscape’s reality.
