THE PROSTHETIC COMPONENT INTERFACE SERIES or PCI

ANDREW BUCKSBARG

2002 - 2005

The conventional notion of interface design is that the interface be perceived as transparent. The Prosthetic Component Interfaces are a series of pieces that attempt to do the opposite. Without any practical application, the PCI function like "interface candy" or audio-visual toys. PCI are participatory media objects- playful, minimalist and game-like instruments, both fictions of science and design. With a mixture of interactive animation and sound, similar to the interfaces in an application’s graphical user interface or home stereo, PCI playfully simulate the interfaces of retro-futuristic electronic components in pixel form. The user explores the PCI and they respond to the user's mouse actions with pixel mechanics and sound. Some of the PCI exhibit simple behaviors, which reference the "artifice" of intelligence in the interface of art. The Prosthetic Component Interface Series involve discovery and the user's performed organization of sonic and pixel forms. The Prosthetic Component Interface Series function as replicant prosthetics for children nine months and older…

CONTINUUM

TOM BADLEY

2006

Continuum appropriates porn clips and reconfigures them into an ambient evolving sequence. The editing technique focuses on the face, effectively reciprocating the violent intensity of the original material. Conversely, the jittery evolution of the faces resemble dancing watercolours, while the audio texture wonders from one pitch to the next. Continuum is part of a body of work that utilizes freely available material on the web, editing their sequence according to musical and mathematical rules.

Tom Badley studied at the Slade School of Fine Art. He has exhibited in London and New York and has contributed to numerous publications and online journals. As well as video installations, his work includes drawing, sculpture, text and music. More information can be found at tombadley.net

 

SEARCHING IN THE BOX

FRANCESCA RONCAGLIOLO

2006

Searching In The Box is part of a digital painting project that has different forms of representation. This is just one of its vertions. It is an exploration project wich main idea is to experiment painting in a different way than in its printed vertion experimenting with painting within a dinamic context. The project is based on the process of searching. It uses characters drawn from the Internet. I look for the characters exploring the Internet through words. I use portraiture as a medium to explore the subject´s representation, in this case, different subjects that try to make out a bigger portrait. (An Internet portrait?, a modern subject portrait?, a selfportrait? ).This is a feedback project between painting and the Internet (Internet-painting-Internet), It is also a Work in progress.

Francesca Roncagliolo was born in Lima, Peru, 1978, and now lives and works in Madrid, Spain. She holds MA in Art and New Technologies from Universidad Europea de Madrid as well as studies in Fine Arts at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, Vancouver-Canada and in Photography at Centro de la Fotografía, Lima-Perú, etc. Her works have been shown at various places in Spain and Latin America, including the Premi Miquel Casablancas 2005, Centro de Arte Joven, Madrid 2004, and Circuitos de Artes Plásticas y Fotografía, Madrid 2004.

ZINHAR

BABEL

2005

One of the most important components of the 'Barcode of Life' initiative is the construction of a public reference library of species identifiers which could be used to assign unknown specimens to known species. This database will lead to the 'Life Barcoder', linking biological identification to developments in DNA sequencing, electronics and information science. In order to construct the database, DNA barcode data must first be obtained from all known species. Perhaps it is no surprise then that barcodes - designed to tag physical objects with information in order to be processed by computers - are now being extended to humans in the form of 'bio-barcodes' that can be implanted or injected. Despite the ethical concerns about this surreptitious physical integration of the digital into the biological, a number of companies are rushing to patent human bar code systems in a market already estimated to be worth $100 billion. Both these developments are at the root of Zinhar - a representation of a future handheld bioscanner that is broken and incomplete, but can be fixed by the user in order to complete its scan for life.

Zinhar is a collaboration between the Turkish visual poetry magazine Zinhar ( www.zinhar.com ) and the post-dada magazine 391.org ( www.391.org ), and was conceived and edited by the british/canadian artist babel ( www.babel.ca ) with contributions by Serkan Isin, Derya Vural, Deniz Tuncel, Baris Cetinkol, Asli Serin, Abraham Abulafia, Keith Martin and Escha Romain.
