Stu Sontier aka acquisitive-eye is an experimental photographer who works with digital devices to question the role of images in a digital society. Deconstructing digital image production with failing inkjet printers and re-using waste inks resulted in the creation of works for an exhibition at the Refinery Artspace, Nelson in 2021. Since investigating digital outlets and nfts through the experimental hicetnunc platform, he has studied online networked-image processing tools that use satellite and aerial images to map the earth. He predominantly presents work in online spaces, digital screens and Tezos-based nfts to reduce his ecological footprint.


Stu Sontier, também conhecido como acquisitive-eye, é um fotógrafo experimental que trabalha com dispositivos digitais para questionar o papel das imagens em uma sociedade digital. A desconstrução da produção de imagens digitais com impressoras jato de tinta com defeito e a reutilização de tintas residuais resultaram na criação de obras para uma exposição no Refinery Artspace, Nelson em 2021.

Satellite imaging investigation of desert pivot irrigation via Landsat / Copernicus imaging. Stimulated by discussions around alternatives to industrial growing practices, this work is inspired by the pen plotter 5x5 equivalent by a.i. gardening. ----- acquisitive-eye project is using satellite map images in combination and modified, to question the level of veracity in Google Earth while also investigating human impact on the Earth. Sources should be quoted with any display of the work as per Google creative uses policy Source: Google Earth, Landsat / Copernicus
