‘Remote sensing’ typically means the ability to collect data from a distance; in Peru it takes on double meaning as we will be privileged to dually explore the limitations and tolerances of terrain data acquired online (@Huaraz) in juxtaposition to the opportunities our on-site sensing will allow via physical contact to our amazingly remote basecamp.

The other duality of this 9 day exploration comes with the interest not only in the digital < > physical feedback of terrain features but perhaps more importantly the self monitoring on our adaptive beings as we arrive from multiple locales to acclimate together for 2 days in Huaraz (10,000′) before proceeding to an altitude of 15,500′ from where we  will continue to track our body responses. 




LaN’s current explorations are driven by a brief we have titled in 2012 ‘LIVING FORCES‘.  Continuing on a quest to guide our endeavors increasingly science-like and field-based–  LaN is curating experiences with further diverse people / places and technological resources.

  • crafted-nature of data collection
  • how one can utilize the website COSM
  • photographic image data
  • Arduino & DIY sensor making
  • collaborative aspects of digital fabrication
  • data management
  • kml / gpx tracking
  • self-tracking (body data)
  • terrain modeling & milling (explorations in Rhino/RhinoCAM)

With our unique remoteness, we will be challenged to devise ways of meet our tracking ambitions with our varying communication & power access. This should provide an amazingly strategic test for us.
