About Rover

Rover is a mechatronic imaging device inserted into quotidian space, transforming the sights and sounds of everyday life through its peculiar modes of machine perception. Using computational light field photography and machine listening, it creates a kind of cinema following the logic of dreams: suspended but mobile, familiar yet infinitely variable in detail. Rover draws on diverse traditions of robotic exploration, landscape and still life depiction and audio field recording to create a hybrid between photography and cinema. Rover won the Best Art Paper award at SIGGRAPH 2017 and was previously installed in a shipping container resembling a camera obscure.
