|THERMALCITIES: PATTERNS AND FORM
explained on the main Buildings page, novel images of the built
environment, with qualities associated with patterns and form,
were two 'finds' from experimenting with the thermal imaging
camera as part of the original work for Thermalcities.
These images are mainly of various points around Canary
Wharf and West India Quay, and also a whole batch captured from
a single point at the junction of Leadenhall Street and Lime
Street (Which, in a few years time will probably be the best
ground-level point in London from which to feast upon a
collection of really interesting buildings.)
Also present is an obligatory
shot of the Millennium Wheel and, next to the visuals, a repeat
of a window pattern initially shown on the home page. Next to it
here is a visual reference photograph of roughly the same panes
of glass. Both visuals are from new buildings to the West of
Euston Tower on the Euston Road. The left hand visual is a
reference shot for another pattern shown on the home page.
If you want to understand more
about what exactly is being presented in each image and why,
check out the about the technology page,
which is a primer on thermal imaging.
Most images link to relatively
grainy 640x480 enlargements. Higher definition imagery can be
drawn from the base image set if needed in due course.
