Evan Roth ‘Flattens’ Berlin Sky Using Ancient Mapping Algorithm

American artist Evan Roth premieres a new video series, Skyscapes: Berlin-Mitte (2023), at panke.gallery and Zentrum für Netzkunst’s /rosa project space as part of transmediale’s “a model, a map, a fiction” program. In the piece, Roth distorts photographs of the sky around his Berlin home with custom software that utilizes mapping projections dating back as far as 150 AD. This age-old “flattening process” translates a spherical world into a plane, Roth explains, and reveals “the biases of the mapmaker.”
