Zone Interdite
Regine Debatty, 22 Feb 06

press_tmbi_006.jpg The military world is hidden from civil society by fences and prohibitive signs. Nevertheless, Swiss artist Matthias Jud and Christoph Wachter have spent five years scanning search engines and atlas to collect information, pictures and map over these restricted areas and they documented their findings in Zone Interdite (restricted area).

Level 1 shows a map of the world with about 1,200 restricted areas marked by green dots. Click on one of the dots and a window will pop up with a short description of the place. Any user who has further information about that location can add it on the website.

The LEVEL_02 part of the project reconstructs particular areas as 3D worlds. A PC-version is freely downloadable and can be personally explored as a virtual walkthrough. So far, Guantanamo Bay in Cuba with its prison camps as well as an Islamic training camp in Sudan are available.
