By Roy Ascott

This quantity built from the experiences released in Roy Ascott's hugely profitable Reframing attention, documenting the very most recent study from these attached with the CAiiA-STAR centre and its linked meetings. Their paintings embodies inventive and theoretical study in new media and telematics together with points of man-made lifestyles, robotics, technoetics, functionality, machine song and clever structure, to starting to be overseas acclaim. inside a technological context, those chapters tackle modern theories of recognition, subjective event and which means. the focal point is either on and past the electronic tradition, assimilating new principles from the actual sciences when embracing religious and inventive facets of human event.

In harnessing the internal and external life forces of the maize is it possible that they were approaching some idea of an overriding and integral model of consciousness?. In the spiral/vortex of the female maize ear. The paired symmetries of proteins and water were displayed like a digital abacus and thousands of varieties of maize, crosspollinated by the moist breath of wind, formed a complete colour coded information system. Maize was considered to be kin, a gift from the gods and each colour, yellow, red, blue black was part of a directional scheme.

Hamilton’s work entitled A Typographic Version by Richard Hamilton of Marcel Duchamp’s Green Box (Hamilton, 1960) presents a number of such notes related to a ‘playful physics’. 2. See N.

In relation to this approach I am interested in exploring the abstraction or poetics of the authorship of such code-based laws in the generation of virtual space and/or media installations. The code-based authoring of an artificial physics which is consistent within the virtual space, yet does not adhere to the laws of actual physics, becomes a central focus. Instead of sticking to the physics of reality, I am interested in exploring a techno-poetic artificial physics which abstracts and encodes particular consistent laws of media-behavior as an authored artificial physics.
