While on a recent arts residency in the curious city of Newcastle, I soaked in enough local lore and culture and hidden secrets to create a large scale digital poem. Sydney's Siberia is an infinitely zooming, mosaic generating, entirely interactive artwork that explores Newcastle through 121 poe
tic image/tiles. As with most digital poems there is no accurate way to describe the experience, and instead these works demand play and exploration.
So go play and explore and lose yourself within Sydney's Siberia. And the first person to guess the title's origin might win a prize (or great admiration).
I am curious as to what others think of this work and interface, as in some ways this is a departure from my past work.
cheers, Jason Nelson
