Project description online

Living and non-living systems are considered in relation to technology. This includes but not limits to sensing and recording activity of the organisms with the help of sensors, sonifying, visualizing and analyzing their behavior.

The course was designed as an introduction to work with interfaces between living organisms and machines. The weekly seminar was divided into theoretical and practical parts. During the theoretical part, we discussed artworks in relation to bioelectronics, also took a look into contemporary discourses around biosemiotics and media theory. The practical part involved work with organisms, electronics and computers. Participants were introduced to the free, open source, and cross-platform Pure Data visual programming language. The biosemiotics part was introduced by Dario Martinelli during the block seminar.
