Collaboration between ZEITGUISED and photographer Ben Sandler, Badlands, 2014. CG engineering by Marian Pramberger. image posted with permission of the artists.
The Badlands series is a collaboration between photographer Ben Sandler and the digital art group ZEITGUISED. Sandler’s photographs of the Arizona desert are juxtaposed with ZEITGUISED’s digital modeling tools to interpret the phenomenology of the region’s geological formations. The resulting work reveals the contrast of the stark reality of the desert topography against the slick reductive qualities of the digital remodeling.
