Video comprising one episode of Madmen incompletely downloaded from the internet via bittorrent. The video has been linearly edited, no digital effects were used and all jump cuts and repeats are in the corrupted file.
The video captures an episode of the popular TV show in the act of being shared by thousands of users on bittorent. The video simultaneously acts as a visualisation of bittorrent traffic and the practice of filesharing and is an aesthetically beautiful by product of the bittorrent process as the pieces of the original file are rearranged and reconfigured into a new transitory in-between state.
It also avoids infringing the copyright of Madmen as it is incomplete.
The unique installed - performable environment, based on ingenious scientific errors of last centuries.
1.Planet X. Behind Pluton there is the hidden planet-giant
2.Tahions. Exist particles runs faster than light and some from the future to the past
3..Molecule of Memory. We can transfer our memory by separate molecule from human to human.
4.AntiMatter. The Solar system and Space are filled by an Antimatter
5.Form of Atom. Atoms have the form of cubes
6.Static Moon. Moon has a torsion
7.Water Polymer. There is polymer, the drop of one can destroy Oceans by polymerization
8.Light Element. There are extra-light elements on the Sun which are not presented on the Earth
9.Compressive Earth. Our planet is cooling down and also is compressing
Each hypothesis is corresponded with own sophisticated scenography , advanced Video Mapping projection and physical actor's action.

20 Hz observes a geo-magnetic storm occurring in the Earth's upper atmosphere. Working with data collected from the CARISMA radio array and interpreted as audio, we hear tweeting and rumbles caused by incoming solar wind, captured at the frequency of 20 Hertz. Generated directly by the sound, tangible and sculptural forms emerge suggestive of scientific visualisations. As different frequencies interact both visually and aurally, complex patterns emerge to create interference phenomena that probe the limits of our perception.

Exhibited at 'Time Machines', Oxford Brookes, 13.09.11 - 16.09.11. The piece was designed to be shown outside, but halogen lamps provide enough light to power the motors indoors. Please contact me if you would like to include Sundial in a show: email@example.com
The background sounds in the first shots are the other pieces in the show.
Equilibrium is part of an ecology of hybrid organisms in development. It is a system in which a plant and an artificial mechanism share a mutual relationship. This hybrid system is composed of two small motors, solar cells, microchip, light sensors and a plant. The whole system is arranged in a form of a balance that is able to spin around its axes in a compass manner. The artificial system occupies one side of the balance and it is set to perform in a photovore (seeking light) behaviour by controlling two propellers which put the whole system to rotate clockwise or counter-clockwise. A small plant is located on the other side of the balance so that when the balance rotates in its axes the plant is posited towards the light. In turn, along with the plant two solar cells absorb light and feed the artificial system.
Equilibrium is an artefact with autonomous behaviour. It belongs to a class of artificial hybrids emerging from contemporary art practices concerning with the creation of new man-made organisms. This class of beings points to new questions on the issue of interaction as their relationship with the observer is not only based on rules of cause and effect. More than interactive response to human behaviour these organisms ask for dialogues, requiring a sort of investigation into their own nature in order to unfold the network of meaning to which they belong. If nature is a concept, never achieved objectively, but only subjectively, and if art is one of the most powerful tools to modulate subjectivity, ultimately our consciousness, the hybrid of plants and artificial systems may bring new insights about the world we live in and its ongoing metamorphosis.
