About the Project
Part of Art in the Anchorage 14, Station Unidentified was an easy-to-navigate online environment, a “virtual installation” that explored themes of micro/macro-cosmic phenomena, collective memory, and metaphysics via an architectural theory that took the J.G. Ballard story Report on an Unidentified Space Station as its foundation.
Viewers navigating through the virtual station provoked mouse sensitive points, which triggered the recitation of sequential portions of text, as well as associated audio elements. As viewers proceeded through the station, a narrative dependent on the user’s choices began to unfold.
