How can we visualise people’s state of mind in times of confusion and transformation?
Some Way Out of Here by Jos Jansen (NL) explores a new and different way to represent the uncertainty of the era we currently live in. He sought the limits of lens-based image making in a manner that resonates with the fluidity of this theme.
Jansen worked with a 3D LiDar camera that is also used in self-driving cars, for instance. LiDar technology emits invisible pulses of light which are reflected back and recorded in the form of three-dimensional, often mysterious, point clouds.
With this camera he scoured the streets of Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam, capturing people lost in their thoughts, questions and dreams.
Unknown futures lie ahead.
