1. Global network activity measurement
    --
    Digital data are emitted from the exhibition space towards 193 computers located in every UN member state. Variations in the travel time towards the 193 states are represented as diagrams. They draw what could be an encephalography of the Internet. Through this set of located probes, the 193 electrograms informs on the internal dynamics and the overall state of the network. Also comparable to echo location or sonar methods, this process draws up a geography of nations in the digital network.

  2. CECILE BABIOLE has converted a series of valves from their usual industrial use into percussion instruments. An electronic controller triggers sudden bursts of tiny raps and taps that resound in the ambient space of the gallery, whilst stamping their imprint on the gallery wall. These Whippersnappers sound off without warning, startling visitors when they least expect it – which keeps them constantly on their toes.

  3. An ultra low resolution device made of 60 light boxes.
    In this age of high definition and pixel inflation, in which mass market digital cameras display tens of millions of pixels, I figured a jolt in reverse was in order. So I decided to create “ultra-low resolution” screens with a 10 x 6 pixel matrix. The pixels are generated by lightboxes containing LEDs of variable intensity. This highly reduced resolution “scrambles” the images displayed. The resultant rarefaction, the near-disappearance of readily legible signs, turns the viewing into a borderline experience of the limits of visual perception.

  4. Installation [Nicolas Maigret]

    SYSTEM INTROSPECTION, can be envisaged as an observation of the machine by itself, proposing a physical experience of the numeric data. The installation is based on a concrete exploration of the binary code and its intrinsic qualities (structure, logic, rhythm, redundancy, compression) immediately returned in the form of visual and sound flows.
