We Pretended It Wasn't Green is a generative animation by James Stephen Wright using satellite data.

Showcasing a frog and enchanting mushrooms intricately woven into a constantly changing narrative influenced by earth data, the project highlights a disorienting contrast: a world where the vibrant green hues of nature are distorted and manipulated, representing our tendency to ignore the consequences of our actions. Within this distorted reality, the mushrooms become silent witnesses, existing on the brink of vulnerability yet potentially outliving us all.
