Google Map , May 2012

by Erica Rowe; Bryan Mohr


Mediums: Mural, Mixed Media

Location: Downtown; Grain Silo 3417 Vinton St. Omaha NE

Owner: Emerging Terrain

Series: Stored Potential Two

Additional Information: ‘Google Map’ by Erica Rowe and Byran Mohr is a reminder of the domination of technology in our mobility. Using the familiar icons of Google Maps overlaid with a simplified depiction of the Omaha Riverfront Trail, they created their banner as an illustration of the increasing merging of transportation and technology. Erica and Bryan began their explorations for this project by considering how long it had been since either used a printed map to find their way. How outmoded is travel that involves buying a map, asking a stranger for directions, or even just trekking on until discovering the destination and many unexpected discoveries along the way. We now rely on little arrows on a screen to direct our way from A to B, with accuracy and dependability, and perhaps even a shifted perception of space, time, and a visual connection to our mobility based on digital representation. The artists believe Google is, and will continue to be, one of the leading forces in the information transportation revolution–turning our world into a more technologically accessible and interpretive landscape. They point out that it is Google who has driven every inch of the country to bring us ‘street view’ of our very own homes and driveways.

Grey Matter , May 2012

by Brian Hamilton


Mediums: Mural, Mixed Media

Location: Downtown; Grain Sil0 3417 Vinton St. Omaha NE

Owner: Emerging Terrain

Series: Stored Potential Two

Additional Information: Grey Matter manifests an effort to restructure the perceptual hierarchy of the biological, behavioral, and infrastructural/material patterns that exhibit our existence. Viewed from afar, a defined depiction of a neuron is the predominant feature of the graphic. Upon closer examination, the delineation of the neuron becomes an indistinct figure amidst a dense ground of mapped vectors. These vectors embody a diversity of both corporeal and metaphysical interactions – be it the biologically scripted behavior of social insect colonies, historical human settlement and transportation patterns, or the nodal recursive branching model of digital communication networks. Within the dense environment of Grey Matter, the “natural” and “synthetic” networks mingle. The two-dimensional graphic was generated by bridging several 3d modeling platforms, involving generative simulation and intuitive topological mesh modification to create an aesthetic stability between chaos and coalescence.
