Epicentres is a book containing a collection of computer-generated images that indicate the position of earthquakes in remote locations. Tremors that are low on the Richter scale might only be sensed by seismological recording equipment rather than be felt by humans. These images have been automatically generated from sensor data, and exist as automated representations of geological events that may never have been subjectively experienced.
