ABOUT

Nul Punt Wolk, which means zero point cloud in Dutch, refers to the point clouds of LIDAR data which berte & harmey use to generate a series of Bare Maps

Since early 2020, both artists (Filip Berte and Cliona Harmey) have worked transnationally together via online platforms, sharing research and exploring ideas around spatial politics, critical geography, historical legacies and socio-technical systems of exclusion and inclusion. Of particular interest to both artists are ideas around visibility/invisibility, occlusion and machine vision. Research is combined in a lateral way with an approach that combines experiential artistic work with historical/archival/technical research to explore contemporary spatial politics.

During the first lockdown (Spring 2020) they have worked together remotely using teleconferencing to create the workflow and first prototype versions for their investigative critical mapping project Nul Punt Wolk. During this time they made the first Bare Map prototypes, representing the wider area of the City of Ghent, which is designed to act as a tool for an enhanced observation and re-envisioning of our habitat.
