Post-lenticular Landscapes: Nevada and Vernal Falls, after Watkins, Weed, Muybridge and Adams
This pointcloud animation journeys down the Merced River taking in the exact POV of many of the most famous historic images that have defined Yosemite and the idea of the America wilderness for nearly 150 years. Seen through the eyes of the terrestrial laser scanner the entire landscape is perpetually on view; a single frame taken from a Muybridge perspective contains every Watkins and Weed that preceded it and every Adams or iPhone selfie to follow it.
