The “polar” project centers on fixed-point observations of the earth’s natural and informational environment from an artist’s position. The previous polar I, presented in Tokyo in 2000, introduced a network-based original search engine, developed in order to observe the earth as an environment based on a variety of information. The updating process was translated into images and sounds exhibited in an audio-visual installation. The aim of this second installment is to establish an original platform for investigations into the diverse environments that surround us in the year 2010, after 10 years since its first installment.
