“Biomodd” by Angelo Vermeulen, et al

Biomodd is a collaborative art project conceived to challenge presumed notions of opposition between nature and technology in different cultures throughout the world. The title Biomodd came up spontaneously as a working title, but very rapidly came to embody the nature of the project and naturally became the final title.

Biomodd is predicated on a set of themes:

Symbiosis between biological and electronic systems. In Biomodd, nature and technology are not juxtaposed but rather fused into imaginative hybrid installations. The core idea is the creation of experimental systems in which modified computer networks coexist with living ecosystems. The challenge is to bring biological life as physically close to the electronics as possible, and allow them to communicate with each other through meaningful symbiotic relationships.

Turbulence Spotlight: Corrupt™ by Benjamin Gaulon

Turbulence Spotlight: Corrupt™ – data corruption software by Benjamin Gaulon (aka Recyclism):

Corrupt™ was originally built with Proce55ing. This PHP version has been realised in collaboration with BlueMelon. The corruption process starts by reading the binary of an image file [JPG or GIF]; then some bytes are randomly swapped. The file is then “saved as” a new document. Depending on the number of replacements and the original compression, the image will have a completely different and unpredictable aesthetics. Thus, from a single image the program can generate millions of corrupted versions. And because it is a real corruption system that damages the binaries of a file, some of the results can’t be showed because they are too damaged. Continue reading

The Zero Dollar Laptop Project

Furtherfield needs your old laptops for work with homeless people in London… >The Zero Dollar Laptop Project:

In January 2010 The Zero Dollar Laptop Project kicks off with clients of St Mungo’s charity for homeless people in London. We will be recycling hardware, breaking Windows and installing Free and Open Source Software to build media laptops and create music, graphics and video for distribution over the Internet. Participants will leave the project with street-smart technical knowledge and a wireless enabled media laptop, classier than any shiny power-book.

The Zero Dollar Laptop is a recycled computer, running Free Open Source Software (FOSS) that is fast and effective — now and long into the future. Do you have an old, unused laptop taking up space in your home or office? Would you like to see it returned to productive life? If YES, then please donate your old laptop. Continue reading

Carnivorous Domestic Entertainment Robots

“Over the coming years, Robots are destined to play a significant part in our daily existence. The idea of sharing our lives with these artificial entities in their various guises has captured the public imagination for decades.

Robots have represented both our hopes and fears for what the technological future may hold, yet at this time they remain very much an enigma. There is a huge disparity between the profound potential robots exhibit in the realms of science fiction and our imagination; the banal reality of vacuum cleaners, lawnmowers and robotic pet dogs; and the vision of robots as seen through the eyes of computer scientists and engineers.
