"Irrational Computing" is an artistic test of material, esthetics and potentials of the digital. The installation is based on semiconductor crystals – the basic commodity of information technology. It consists of five interlinked modules that use the varied electrical and mechanical particularities and characteristics of crystals and minerals and, through their networking, form a kind of raw and primitive macroscopic signal processor.
An interactive art piece consisting of a grid of 96 guitar effects pedals that are wired together, as well as a guitar and an amplifier. As people step on the different pedals they activate various effects, which multiply over one another, creating a dynamic sonic experience.
Augmented Structures v2.0' by Refik Anadol and Alper Derinbogaz is a distilled urban experience project which focuses on two dissimilar regions in istanbul and displays the inner characteristics of the texture of a city-center that has undergone a recent transformation within a suburban region consisting of gated communities. Presented at Istanbul Design Biennial within the 'Musibet' exhibition curated by local architect Emre Arolat, the work is based on soundscape and data mapping of two regions reveals the invisible information about their context and suggests an alternative way to understand the existence of urbanization through new media technologies.
By bringing disparate disciplines like sound, architecture and visual arts together, the development re-examines the world in aesthetic terms, in its capacity as an 'interdisciplinary transformation'. 'augmented structures series forces each discipline to alter its own 'material' state; transforming sound into mathematics, mathematics into architecture and architecture into a living structure, while presenting the viewer with a new media experience that is multi-levelled, produces sound, moves and breathes.'
The team is diversified by sound designer Kerim Karaoglu and parametric designers Coşku Cinkılıç, Koray Bingöl. — at Istanbul Modern | Istanbul Museum of Modern Art.

Following the recent collaboration with Trent Reznor and How To Destroy Angels (HTDA) in the spring of 2013, Moment Factory was once again asked to supply cutting edge onstage video and interactive visuals, this time for Nine Inch Nails’ 2013 summer Festival tour. This latest collaboration continues the longstanding creative relationship between Moment Factory, Reznor, production/lighting designer Roy Bennett and art director Rob Sheridan; a relationship forged during NIN’s 2008 Lights in the Sky Tour. For this summer’s tour, the Moment Factory team designed and created a wide variety of pre-rendered and real-time content for mobile LED screens.
