INTEL: The Great Western Singularity


Eric Schockmel

Commissioned by 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”.
This short animation examines the concept of the Technological Singularity, the point in human progress after which predictions become increasingly difficult to formulate. Industrialization and computational innovation are re-imagined in a minimalist environment, drawing from video game and runtime aesthetics.


Premiered at “REMASTERED: a jotta and Intel Visual Life Production” – March 9th 2011 at One Marylebone, London
