ISOFIELD has been produced using the izohips map that provides information about physical surface shapes and by making a physical layer from the graphics of the percentage of the population compared to the internet users (1990 – 2010) obtained from Google Publicdata. Ultimately, the acquired digital parametric surface has been dressed with a digital layer. This work is an audio-visual sculpture that tries to bring together physical information with a non-physical information (izohips-digital media) and finally with the physical result obtained it re-digitalize and makes intertwine and reverse the intended use of these nested two concepts.

If we consider that the new media provides a wider and more liberal sharing of information than public space, we can observe that the new media possesses a greater expanse of space, which derives from real world. As e compare these two spaces, we can see that the new media is far more organic and variable whereas the public space is shaped and limited by state and authority.
Can we reverse this physical data visualization, which is produced out of non-physical information? By covering a physical surface with a digital layer, can we soften the concept of reality between the “physical” and “digital”?
Digital data sharing; reification of the real-world space and value of the new media and coating the resultant parametric surface with a digital layer, by employing ISOHIPS mapping method, which provides physical data on the surface forms. Combining an information, which is originally physical, with a non-physical information (isohips-digital media) and re-digitizing the physical result; an audio-visual installation that questions and aims for the entwining of these two concepts.
