(Networked audio-visual installation 2006..2011) ...video projection on the floor.
In Internet Topography, 50Hz audio signals are sent from the exhibition space to Tokyo, then returned within the installation space where we can listen to it. The transmission errors that occur during these streamings are analyzed and then considered as a potential and incomplete layout of the network topography. Similar to a landscape, this digital topography proves to be an unstable organization of patterns, shapes and outlines opening the way to multiple mental representations. This imaginary scope is made perceptible trough an immersive sound and light installation.
This installation plays the keys of a piano based on the movements and shapes of the clouds. A camera pointed at the sky captures video of the clouds. Custom software uses the video of the clouds in real-time to articulate a robotic device that presses the corresponding keys on the piano. The system is set in motion to function as if the clouds are pressing the keys on the piano as they move across the sky and change shape. The resulting sound is generated from the unique key patterns created by ethereal forms that build, sweep, fluctuate and dissipate in the sky.
This installation was commissioned by L’assaut de la Menuiserie, Saint-Etienne, France and completed with support from the Visualization and Digital Imagining Lab and Weber Music Hall, University of Minnesota.
The 111oOzOo111 installation invites the audience to discover a few hundreds of online projects, "exhibited" on a mini network of computers, all connected to the Internet. A surfing "bot" is installed on the computers and allows an automatic surf on 30 screens simultaneously. The navigation is done in real time through a selection of online art pieces (mèmes, glitches, animated gifs, lolcats…) created by international net artists who divert and deconstruct social networks and Web2.0 landscapes. The multiscreens webjays system is like a reduced model of the internet, a metaphor of its codes specificities and of the way information flows and appears on the web.
