    [NEW VIDEO ALERT! Here's our latest video essay https://vimeo.com/delvetv/bananas-sardines-sharks] It was the change that no-one saw coming: the idea that we could take a book, a painting or a song and send it through cables and wires and even thin air to the other end of the world - and it would be identical on the other side. But this idea underpins everything about the Information Age we live in. How did we make such a mind bending transition into the digital world? And how does it work? It turns out it's all based on a concept that is surprisingly beautiful in its simplicity. This short video essay explores what that idea is and tells you about the man who figured it all out. Computers are everywhere and control almost every aspect of our lives. In the next 6 minutes you'll find out how they really work. // DELVE DEEPER: Curious?

        A prisoner receives the message that his old father needs help with tilling the field. «From Dad To Son» has been screened at 150+ film festivals and received 12 awards. The story exists in its basic features since a fable by Aesop (600 B.C.) and is told to this day in anecdotes and urban myths.

          Commissioned by: Buro Knapzak / Client: Freeband / Year: 2009 My role: design and direction Freeband Communication and IIPIC share a vision of the future: a world in which information and communication technology render one's surroundings into a thinking and caring environment. The results of the Freeband Communication research program should be visualized in a compelling film. I approached the material using infographics to explain the vast quantities of data. To create a relationship with the continuing technology the film starts with a minimalist introduction in a narrow color spectrum and gradually transitioned to an abundant, multicolored world.

                  In TRACK/09 which was exhibited at santralistanbul Main Gallery between 14 May and 26 September 2010, there was a wide selection of works created during the previous academic year presented by students of Istanbul Bilgi University's Department of Visual Communication Design and Department of Photography and Video. The entire technical and organizational structure of the exhibition was designed and produced by students. Since 2001, the annual exhibition has brought together students’ work and displayed them using an inhouse developed user interface under themes such as Network, Flight, Depth, Rocket Science, Compression, Implant, Taction and Data Fragmentation, this year opting for the new theme, “Error”. Departing from the theme that error, a frequent occurrence in our everyday life, and the interruption it causes, is not necessarily unforeseeable, TRACK/09 suggested the perception of error as an inherent part of the environment. The exhibition included a custom-built simulation in accordance of this conceptual framework, inviting the viewer to re-evaluate the effects of error. Presented in this context, TRACK/09 was submitted to the evaluation of cultural, professional and academic circles.

                      « Une chasse aux fantômes, c'est avant tout un voyage dans l'inconnu. On ne sait pas vraiment ce que l'on cherche et on ne sait pas vraiment quelle sera la nature de nos découverte. On ne sait pas forcément si nos outils sont les bons, s'ils sont fiables et efficaces. On ne sait pas non plus si les efforts que l'on déploie seront fructueux et on ne sait pas si les lieux que l'on va visiter seront propices au contact et à la rencontre. Chercher des fantômes, c'est donc avant tout suivre son instinct, se fier à sa sensibilité, écouter son cœur et expérimenter en se laisser guider par ses intuitions ... » *Cette vidéo est aussi disponible sur Youtube GRATUITEMENT : youtube.com/user/gussdxvideo Remerciements : Jean Guyon & Marion Cousin (Domaine Rollan de By)
