This artwork is a meditation on the intricate geometry of highway interchanges. Using a generative process, a slowly evolving tapestry is derived from satellite imagery, retrieved at random on each visit from a database of curated locations.

A frame drifts over the satellite image, its dimensions and position slowly changing according to random noise. The image is sampled based on this frame, then repeated and mirrored along a grid formation to generate the tapestry.

The pace of the work stands in stark contrast with the bustling arteries that are the subject of its fascination. At times almost at a standstill, the piece ebbs and flows following the leisurely undulations of the noise, creating space for contemplation.
