Commissioned by jotta.com for Intel‘s REMASTERED series on art history masterpieces. A contemporary reinterpretation of JMW Turner‘s painting “Rain, Steam and Speed – The Great Western Railway“.

Industrialization and computational innovation are re-imagined in a minimalist environment, drawing from video game and runtime aesthetics.
