Buffer Zone Blues
HD film, 5.1ch sound | work-in-progress
In the 1950s, the United States created a list of over 1,100 nuclear targets in the Eastern Bloc. This film visualizes them in hypnotic fragments of satellite imagery, along with an essay on being at mercy of automated systems.
The visuals are created by Google Maps API and complex compositing in Nuke.
