Vast layered terrains. Chaotic delamination. The texture of endless detail. Autonomous prototypes. 1200 iterations per second. Actions tracked and extended indefinitely. Industrial landscapes built on proprietary geomembranes lined with sensors. The thermal stability of nanostructured glass. Operational integrity and extravagant optimism. Philosophical problems inherent in the device. Subterranean cloud infrastructure. High spec rugged credentials. Carefully balanced climates.

Joe Hamilton (b. 1982 Tasmania) makes use of technology and found material to create intricate and complex compositions online, offline and in-between. His recent work questions our established notions of the natural environment within a society that is becoming increasingly networked. Hamilton holds a BFA from the University of Tasmania and an MA from RMIT in Melbourne. His work has been shown to great extent internationally with recent group exhibitions at The Moving Museum Istanbul, The Austrian Film Museum, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf and The New Museum in New York.
