Organum Vivum is an interspecies interface advantaging the characteristics of organic material as well as exploring the possibilities of combining natural and build organisms in sound synthesis. Bacterial cellulose items, working as sensors, are translating our direct interaction with them into a soundscape controllable with touch and breath. In order to communicate in human level through the instrument we’ll have to be aware of the behaviour of a natural material and it’s, sometimes unpredictable, responses to our actions. The result is a sonification of direct interspecies interaction between a human and a micro-organism.

Cachemonet is an exploration into the serendipitous collisions that occur between two randomly generated arrays. the arrays contain a mix of custom and found .gifs sourced from tumblr and are set to music. the output is autonomous, generative, art made possible through curation & code.
Oh, almost forgot: We started a new, a more ‘money’ focused project. It’s called ‘Rainbow Unicorn’ and you can find more info on our brandnew website.
Tick (Tic) tries to embed the notion of uselessness, extravagance and non-intentionality in programmed environments. The parasite application augments the interaction with your personal computer with arbitrary curly moves of your mouse cursor from time to time. The efficiency and accuracy of the machine is slightly infiltrated by generated quirk. Although beeing totally programmed itself it asks for how easily we allow for exceptions or irregularities in an increasingly programmed reality. Download.

Corrupt.desktop glitch, in real time, the computer’s desktop image. So if you want to glitch your local Apple Store or Apple Retailer simply download the App (from the shop’s computer):

Corrupt.online, Corrupt.video and Corrupt.desktop are using the same algorithm, which consists of a binary alteration of the original data. So technically Corrupt damages the data on a binary level, which result in unpredictable and beautiful results.
A project by Martial Geoffre-Rouland and Benjamin Gaulon, based on Corrupt a web based Glitch Art Software allowing its user to upload and share corrupted images on www.corrupt.recyclism.com.
This project is made with the openFrameworks library.
“This project has started from a search for a 3d-objects optimal packing algorithm over a surface, but evolved in something rather different. I love the work by Richard Long, from which this project takes its cue. The way he fills lonely landscapes with arcaic stones patterns and its eroic artistic practice, in his monumental vision, is in strong contrast with this computational approach that – ironically – allows virtual stones creation and sorting in a non phisical, mental way, a ‘lazy’ version, so to speak. The virtual stones created by several fractal subdivision strategies, find their proper position within the circle, with a trial and error hierarchical algorythm. A mix of attractors and scalar fields (some with Perlin noise) drives the density and size of the stones. The code is a C++ console application that outputs a OBJ 3d file.”

Hotel is an animated series of 10 episodes and a virtual world that can be explored by Internet users created by Benjamin Nuel. Starting on the 3rd of October, you can watch the episodes of the series and explore every week after October 10th this world in the different states it is going through.
‘Words of a middle man‘ ist ein WLAN-Router, der Kommunikationsverbindungen im eigenen Netzwerk analysiert und auf einem integrierten Bildschirm darstellt. Die maschinelle Kommunikation zwischen allen im Netzwerk beteiligten Akteuren – also Menschen, Geräte und Server – wird in natürliche Sprache übersetzt und somit für Menschen lesbar und verständlich. Aus der Position des erzählenden Beobachters, gibt der Router Aufschluss über Aktivität und Inhalt der zwischen Mensch und Computer geführten Dialoge.
