Launch of The Rhythm of Life at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen!

We invite you to visit and experience our latest work, The Rhythm of Life, launching this 13th-14th September at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen during the Witte de Withkwartier Festival 2014. Alongside partnering artwork Experiment #2: Consent, the works explore performative data exchanges under the research enquiry: For What It’s Worth. 13th – 14th September 2014 […] more…
Into full production!

Into full production!

After several months of intense preparations, the project is finally into full production, with the different components to be finalised by May 2014. The kinetic instruments consist of 7 metal stands, produced by De Hoop Amsterdam, each holding a custom made cymbal by cymbalsmith Matt Nolan. Each cymbal will be struck by a solenoid controlled […] more…

Terms & Conditions by the Data and Ethics Working Group

  Last weekend we were invited to ICT Art & Connect 2013. The event brought together a variety of professionals, ranging from Artists, Designers, Curators, Writers, Technicians and others to develop the beginnings of new collaborative work groups and projects all tackling the subject of ICT and new narratives for Europe. We quickly became acquainted […] more…
Molecular ‘Rhythms’

Molecular ‘Rhythms’

Our focus on the body’s biophoton emission, inevitably draws attention to notions of communication and connectivity through light in biological systems. To better address the possibilities this holds for our ideas of interaction and data experience, it is worth including a brief introduction to key concepts and research which expand on notions of feedback and […] more…
Early comparative study of the photon emissions of three subjects

Early comparative study of the photon emissions of three subjects

1st Comparative study of photon emissions from 3 test subjects (Dave, Mike & Susana). One pixel = one photon. more…
Worth the wait?

Worth the wait?

Previously we discussed how the ability to hear and feel the punctuations in rhythm offers a new means by which to interpret body data, giving physical form to digital information, making bits directly manipulable and perceptible. However, what we also alluded to was that the experience with the PMT (and its lasting memory) will not […] more…
A Sound Way To Make Data Tangible

A Sound Way To Make Data Tangible

An introduction… Aqua Vita, our previous collaboration with the Netherlands Metabolomics Centre, was our first journey into the world of ‘body data’, triggered by a fascination with the supposed paradigm shift in healthcare towards a future of daily self monitoring and diagnosis. You can probably refer to Aqua Vita as being a first step towards […] more…
Sound Context (Introduction)

Sound Context (Introduction)

In our project statement, we outline how Rhythm of Life is an investigation of alternative means of representing bodily data. The first reaction for many data designers to such a challenge is to produce visualisations, and indeed we have taken this approach in the past – see The Aqua Vita Project, for example. But in […] more…
