Thousands of explorable realities exist through imagery from rovers and probes, virtual role-playing, and video games. Within the contemporary wilderness, robots have replaced photographers as mediators, producing images completely dislocated from human experience. This suggests that the sublime landscape is now only accessible through the boundaries of technology. Drew Nikonowicz investigates the role of the 21st-century explorer by combining computer modelling with analogue photographic processes. Drawing upon the language of survey images from the 19th century, he questions the relationship with current methods of record making.
