Großartige Arbeit von Will Gowland, der mit einem GPS-Jammer Geodaten verfremdet und daraus New School Landschaftsarchitektur und Glitch-Topographien in LowPoly-Ästhetik gebaut hat. Ich weiß nicht, wieviel davon fiktiv ist und wieviel davon echt, aber es ist ein ziemlich grandioses Beispiel für fantastische Design Fiction.

This live landscape is fed off live data through a gps receiver that is generating a topography that reflects the stability and reliability of the data it receives. Giving rise to the idea that one can learn to read this data like the weather. The number of satellites connected feeds the stability - The rate at which the landscapes appears to flicker. The more satellites that are connected the less it flickers appearing calm. With fewer satellites connected the landscape oscillates more.

The HDOP [ed.: Verringerung der Genauigkeit […] bei Satellitennavigationssystemen, Wikipedia] is an accuracy reading and is feeding the jaggedness of the landscape. Which is defined by the satellites azimuth angle. If the satellite is low to the horizon, atmospheric interference is high leading to less reliable data. The lower the HDOP the more accurate the data and the landscape appears flat. The higher the HDOP and the less accurate the data, the landscape appears jagged and mountainous.

The latitude and longitude effects the cameras global position by moving about the landscape. With the GPS receiver sat in one location the camera will not move. Although it is still possible to pan from this fixed position as demonstrated. The fixage is causing the volume of the beep you are hearing to change, getting louder and quieter depending on the length of time it takes for the signal to be sent from the satellite to the receiver.

The background soundscape is the sound of Kosmo 736 a Russian Reconnaissance satellite from the 70’s slowed down to 700%. The satellites onboard clock affects global illuminations so that the landscape follows night and day cycles. The landscape can therefore be controlled by a device such as a GPS jammer. Allowing individuals to control this landscape at their leisure.
