DATA MADE FLESH
collaboration with Simon Berman
Bus Projects, Melbourne, VIC, Australia (27 Sep - 15 Oct)
Data Made Flesh was a installation work developed in collaboration with the Australian artist Simon Berman, that was exhibited at Bus Projects, Melbourne, Australia. The work explored the underlying structure of “the network” by rendering the flows of binary data that circulated through the localised network that we established for the project as audio-visual outputs. The work employed QR code barcodes, smart phones, and audio-visual synthesis, to produce generative audio-visual outputs that played out across myriad screens and surfaces.
QR codes displayed on the gallery walls, and as stickers scattered on the walls of the surrounding city streets, served to trigger and drive generative synthesis, which produced audio-visual outputs which would play over the audience members smart phone, and the projector and sound system situated in the gallery.
