Data visualizations, animations and 3D mesh geometry for rapid prototyping from GIS data of the island of Nauru for Paul D. Miller / aka DJ Spooky. The visualizations also accompany live musical performances.


'The Nauru Elegies' is a technical synthesis of a live string ensemble, projected high-definition video footage, digital animation and live internet feed of GPS coordinates of specific aspects of the island and its physical and financial infrastructure. It is an orchestration of content retrieved and processed in multiple localities including research in New York City and documentation in Nauru. The “Elegies” are a statement of technology and media processes in the 21st century that is exponentially progressing to a more dematerialized and delocalized state.
