“虚境城市”项目简介

《虚境城市》是英国艺术家迈克尔·马格鲁德(Michael Takeo Magruder)的一个艺术研究及展览项目,主旨是将大英图书馆数字馆藏中的历史地图以信息时代的科技手段转化创作成虚构的城市景观。

展览原是于2019年专为大英图书馆的入口大厅所设计,包括以现代科技为基础的四件艺术装置——这些作品专门选择了大英图书馆Flicker共享平台的“一百万张扫描书籍图像”系列收藏中的十九世纪城市地图和元数据,并进行信息叠加。每个作品各选取了一座历史名城,将当代数字科技与历史模拟过程自然地融合在一起。

迈克尔携手大英图书馆以及官方合作伙伴英国国际贸易部,为在中国重庆举办的2019中国国际智能产业博览会”带来了两件根据原展览创作的艺术作品,其中包括一件使用重庆古地图制作而成的虚拟现实作品。

 

About the Imaginary Cities project  

Imaginary Cities is an arts-research project and exhibition by British artist Michael Takeo Magruder that transforms the British Library’s online collection of historic urban maps into fictional cityscapes for the Information Age.

The exhibition was originally displayed in the British Library Entrance Hall gallery in 2019, and consisted of four technology-based art installations created using images and metadata of 19th-century city maps drawn from the Library’s One Million Images from Scanned Books collection on Flickr Commons. Each installation remixed a famous global city, and blended contemporary digital technologies with historical analogue processes.

For the 2019 Smart China Expo in Chongqing, Michael and the British Library – in partnership with the UK Department for International Trade – have brought two artworks based on the original exhibition, including a specially commissioned VR piece using an early map of Chongqing.
