Oour lives, considered as a data set, as generators of personally identifiable information, as objects of cluster analysis and sources for metadata matching algorithms. The process of capture of life into data, the quantification of life, it is a lossy compression, that uses inexact approximations, rounding and truncation, producing overload distortion and quantization errors. A video for the British Human Computer Interaction Conference.
空 Kū is most often translated as “Void”, but also meaning “Sky”, represents those things beyond our everyday experience, particularly those things composed of pure energy. An immersive audiovisual experience, exploring the incredible world of electromagnetic fields, bringing back images of geometries that are impossible to observe elsewhere. The signal is modulated through a digital modular system, but the output is analogue, an electromagnetic event is taking place in front of our very eyes. A journey into pure light.
