On Sunday June 1, FIBER and Flemish Arts Centre de Brakke Grond hosted the seventh edition of Coded Matter(s), titled Extended Senses.
Intelligent technology grows around us and towards us as an extension of the body, both visible and invisible. The computer has migrated from lap to pocket. A wave of networked watches, glasses and implants is launched at technology trade shows and with the use of sensors we're now able to explore our environment in ways we couldn't before. What are the possibilities of these new developments? And what are the dangers?
During Extended Senses, artist talks, installations and demonstrations allowed us to experience the possibilities and dangers of these developments. Listening to plant conversations, seeing the data created by your body or playing a game with your own muscles. Artists, designers and scientists demonstrated how human senses are being expanded or applied differently, how previously invisible processes of man and nature can be made visible, useful and even aesthetically pleasing.
Our videographer Tanja Busking made this video report of the day and evening programme, in which the participating presenters, performers and creators of installations explain their work and vision of the future. Sit back and enjoy.
