_Speculative Atlas is a video essay on speculation about nature as it relates to media. It deals with how images, objects, landscapes, and data around both natural and artificial objects are stuffed and reproduced in digital space to create fluid specimens—as well as how the ways in which they are collected, displayed, and appreciated form connections between Cabinets of Curiosities in the past and Data Mining in the present. Numerous interactions between the Internet and the real world represent a temporary cluster of fragmented images. They blend time and space on different levels, constantly transforming and expanding. The scattered paths and movements of images generate simultaneous visual stimuli and entropy of matter.
