30 Cycles of Flux
30 Cycles of Flux is a sound piece that consists of utilizing the emission of a 30 cycles wave (right below human beings hearing range) to activate speaker cones with white strings attached to the center of each cone.  When the cones become activated by the infrasound wave the strings move in a constant flow subsequently producing a kinetic visualization of the wave.

Ascendor
Ascendor consists of a twenty five foot tall column of 12 two meter LED tubes running up the center of the main staircase at The Clemente Center. Sensors allow it to measure the volume of activity in the stairwell and render it in the form of a light display, playing the length of the column.
Ascendor came about as the result of an invitation proffered to artist and designer Paul Clay, to create something special for Creative Tech Week, in order to enliven and activate the entry of The Clemente - the building where his studio is located. Paul in turn sought out a team of creative technology collaborators, including Chris Jordan, Josh Goldberg, and Leif Krinkle Mangelsen to execute the project.
Special thanks to Stefan Verhoef, and everyone at InventDesign and DiGidot for the generous donation of all the LED tubes, and for their newly developed DiGidot C4 controller. Special thanks also to The Science Project and to everyone at the Clemente Center and at Creative Tech Week for making this artwork possible.

Aural Outpost
The Depository: Aural Outpost highlights a form of communication that is being disrupted through text and graphical forms of communication -- the sound and voice. A social and liminal space is created through this project. GUI's are creating a new communication language. We can witness it through the grammatical twists used in text messages along with the proliferation of emoticons. Most people have had first-hand experiences with the misunderstanding a text message. Graphics and text open the gap for misinterpretation to exist. Sound closes this gap. Sound gives much more information regarding the communication -- mood, emotion, age, gender, culture, etc. -- that are not as obvious with the same graphical communications. More often than not, these aspects are lost along with the original intent of the message in text-based communications. Users call in to The Depository to leave voice messages or to listen to messages left by others. It unseats the disruptive nature of GUI's and text messages and seeks to facilitate communication between strangers through the buffer of asynchronicity and delay. It mimics crisis hotlines and applications like Voxer, yet reaches a broader audience in an attempt to establish a community within cyber space. Aural Outpost is the physical instantiation of The Depository's network. An on-site server regularly updates with The Depository's sounds and plays the messages periodically through the multichannel system. Each speaker is housed inside a felted cocoon along with a tiny light. The light level modulates according to the audio level of the message. This gives the users a temporal presence within the exhibition space. Viewers can listen to the audio traffic within the system as voyeur, but not an active participant. This enables viewers to piece together clips that others leave, allowing viewers to catch glimpses of these audio portraits and to weave together different narratives.

Criss-Crossing the Divine/An Interactive Exhibition
Criss~Crossing The Divine updates Crossings/An Interactive installation that premiered in the 2009 Thessaloniki Biennale Gr. In 2014 Guild Hall Museum hosted our robotic sculptures & interactive games addressing ever-expanding religious intolerance fueling global wars. The authors of faith created flexible governing scriptures wherein perceptions expand with shifting tastes & priorities thru generations. While robotic sculptures representing devotees of their faith perform quintessential gestures, like actors onstage conversing in a video on the wall, people play interactive games. For Creative Tech week we display one interactive Spiral Vortex Paint Game. Participants, in virtual dialogue with 46,000 original scriptures from five faiths, use an interactive wand to curate topics & assign more or less importance to each topic they select to explore. Peter Koger’s software parses, integrates all topic-word priorities the player assigns, determining which three hundred color-coded text results will appear. After scrolling to read the displaying scripture results, the participant is directed to a website to learn from which religions their color-coded text results originated. Each individual’s search and corresponding results are distinct and this kind of search can never settle into a permanent groove because new questions discover new results, ad infinitum, with no amen.

Electric Sheep - an Immersive Installation
We propose an algorithmic software installation at one of the Creative Tech Week venues. The concept is to install projectors that continuously display always-morphing, uplifting and contemplative animated abstract art images that are made with math. The Electric Sheep have been compared to views of alternate galaxies, underwater reefs, feathers, the molecular insides of gems, visualization of quark theory, Arabian mosaics and Penrose tiles. We like to think of the white side walls in dark areas, that may otherwise go unnoticed, being used as screens that invite passers-by to step into the light, to become bathed in projected images, and leave their silhouettes on the wall.

Natural Order inquiries about the impossibilities, uncertainties and mysteries that nature presents to men when we attempt to apprehend, understand and predict its behaviour. Instead nature arises as an uncontrollable force of creation and destruction, an element whose magnitude and scale become unfathomable and disconcerting. The devastating and dramatic force of phenomena such as cosmic rays, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and floods points to an expanding nature that grows and accommodates... fully unaware of the presence of its beholder.

An algorithmic composition for amplified fluorescent lights.

Deriving its formal aspects from the idea of the binary -- a lamp is either on or off -- and limited to a minimalist palette of white light and 60-cycle hum, this work creates an optical and aural theater which presents light in all its corporality, not as ethereal or transcendent substance, but as the physical result of switches closing and power plants humming, perturbation as much as illumination, the consequence of destruction and the signifier of creation.

ONE ON ONE: An Interactive Performance Installation

Allison Berkoy presents ONE ON ONE, an interactive multimedia installation and performance experience. Participants enter the installation environment and encounter a figurative assemblage of chair parts, enlivened with projection, audio, and computer vision. Lone participants may receive an invitation to sit in a chair facing the figure. Others may watch.

Each ONE ON ONE encounter unravels divergently and unpredictably. The figure makes requests, tells stories, and entertains; responding differently to true ONE ON ONE meetings with a single participant versus engagements with an audience. ONE ON ONE creates an illusion of complex interaction through sensor tracking, custom software, arrays of scripted responses, live internet feeds, and structured randomness.

Opticon
Opticon is an interactive led sculpture by Alex Postelnicu and Jason Levine, that brings into question how, what seems like cohesive experience to one, can often appear disjointed and alien to third parties. Opticon uses perspective illusion to appear to be an abstract audiovisual sculpture for almost all spectators but one. The structure of the installation uses aluminum housed led strips to form a cross-hatching body of disordered and angled pixel strips, each part of a 360º volumetric canvas, yet only clearly understood from one specific position in space. From that single angle, it is a cohesive interactive display, while it becomes an abstract art field from most other angles.

PENELOPE, Where are you love?
TITLE: PENELOPE, Where will you be, love?

Author: Adriana Marmorek

Year: 2011-2014

"Where will you be, Love?, is a work that take messages posted in real time on Twitter where the word love appears , randomly selected and printed on a paper strip ending shattered on the floor. Perhaps there is no more eloquent way to demonstrate the futility of any effort dedicated to define love. This part articulates a discourse on love; Weave only to unweave as Penelope unraveled night trousseau weaving day. Language is redundant as a reality that repeats always exceeded; and it may be that no two areas where this is most radically true that love and of aesthetics. As with love, the work of art is forever impossible to define in all its complexity. So much in love as in art there are excesses that are beyond the scope of language."

Physical Possibility - self-destructive machines
Machines, to date, are human-made and human-oriented. But that might not be so for much longer: futurists like Ray Kurzweil predict the coming Singularity where artificial intelligence will surpass that of the human race. If that comes to pass, how will machines resemble humans and how will they be different? Will they inherit any of our own predilections for self-harm or self-love? Physical Possibility seeks to explore the human reaction to human-like behavior in machines. Each of the set of 4 pieces features a computer than can think - and, by some definitions, can decide - about how it will treat itself. It's not clear at the beginning whether some of the machines will maim themselves out of existence. Only after the course of several days of operation will the audience be able to see the outcome of what we could call the machines' free will.

Randomly Generated Social Interaction
How can we use technology to automate the surface content of our interactions, gaining the freedom to explore deeper layers of connection between each other? What do we lose and what do we gain by giving up our social agency to a computer program? Randomly Generated Social Interactions, a participatory performance first organized for Happenings for Na Kim's SET in Doosan Gallery in New York City, playfully brings the absurd repetitiveness of our digital communications to our physical, real-world interactions. Each participant is given a set of earphones and is asked to visit a website prepared for the performance, where they are assigned an identity consisting of a random name, age, occupation, and personality quirk. Following that, each participant is randomly matched with another participant, and is instructed to interact with them, receiving commands for exactly what to say and do during the interaction. A computer program randomly generates those instructions by mixing a number of "conversation routines"; together. Some routines are entirely verbal (e.g. a discussion about the 2016 presidential election, or about creating art), while others are more physical and comical (e.g. an exercise routine, or a routine in which one participants faints and the other is trying to rescue them).

Regions of Influence a sound installation
Regions of Influence is a multi-channel sound installation blending the art of radio transmission with the unique and obscure language of dreams. It was created by Tim Fodness under the technical guidance of Joseph Morris. Over the course of roughly three years, sound artist Tim Fodness logged his dreams in a journal and recorded himself reading them. The archive was randomly split into groups and stored on media players for audio playback. Each media player is connected to a transmitter that broadcasts its dream content on a specific radio frequency. These frequencies are then tuned into using multiple radios placed around the room. The result is an immersive installation in which multiple dreams are transmitted and received simultaneously. Those visiting the exhibition enter the world of the dreamer, and are enveloped in the symbolic language broadcasted by the unconscious psyche.

Fields, which are defined by science as regions of influence, are present in both radio and dreaming. In radio, it's the electromagnetic field that makes transmission possible. In dreams, it's the field of obscure ideas known as the unconscious mind. Dreaming is said to be a compensatory function. As the conscious mind becomes increasingly bogged down with the practical demands of society, the unconscious weighs in reminding the dreamer of his or her inner attitude. This is why the study of dreams is so important. It helps us shed light on our individual personalities. The same can also be said about the concept of radio, as any study on the subject will reveal its continued role in providing us with much of our current technology. Technology that has become more of a requirement to carry, and less of a requirement to understand.

Stephanie Rothenberg: Planthropy
Stephanie Rothenberg will exhibit “Planthropy,” a robotic garden from her project "Reversal of Fortune” that examines the intersection of social media, finance and philanthropy. In these gardens plants represent recipients of charitable acts in economically challenged regions, creating a more physical, sensorial experience with data. Through this lens the complex relationship between human life and economic growth is made visible. "Planthropy " is a garden of glowing, digital hanging plants that respond to actual Twitter messages posted by donors to various charities. Each plant represents a charity such as breast cancer or refugees. When the plant receives a Twitter post, its electronic system is activated. The plant is watered while the tweeted messages are played aloud through a computerized voice – “I donate because I’m a survivor," “I donate because it's a tax credit." The result is a global “heartbeat” of synthetic voices emoting the feelings of donors from around the world. The piece was recently exhibited in "Right Here, Right Now" at The Lowry Galleries, Manchester, UK.

STORYTIME by Civic.space
STORYTIME is a large sculptural monolith displaying texts that tell stories about time. A playful clock of sorts, the piece changes its content every minute. The first version of the piece will be permanently installed in Syracuse, NY, June 2016. For Creative Tech Week we will show a prototype of the final piece. Using a mixture of literary quotes, references to past events, puzzles, astronomical information and contributions from community workshops and website submissions, we create thousands of unique definitions of time that will appear on the monolith. We will ask people for their quotes or memories about specific times, events, and momentous occasions in their lives to become part of the piece. A collective sign that changes with the seasons, with each moment, with passing clouds and the exact time of the day you met your lover. The final artwork consists of an enclosure made of black powder-coated steel and toughened glass with a white stone bench below. Behind the glass is a dot matrix of LEDs that spell the various texts. People can sit on the bench and it would appear that the texts above are, just maybe, about them. For Creative Tech Week we will show a fully functioning partial recreation of the final piece. The texts are very large, animate in a variety of ways, can be seen from a distance or read from close by. They are various, funny, ceremonial, witty or simple, nostalgic or hopeful. The piece invites multiple visits, conversation and active participation. The piece will work well in a gallery type setting, but optimally, it would be great in a storefront window, interacting with people on the street.

The Rendezvous: A media space for memories of death
The Rendezvous captures the action of speaking about death in an installation of aural and visual media.

We all accumulate stories of the people we’ve lost to death. These memories cycle through us in different ways at different times in our lives. Accessing a broader range of experiences than purely personal memories allows us to better navigate future loss. Yet our culture provides few spaces for sharing loss beyond an intimate circle, after the closure of mourning rituals. Where can we go to engage with the details of death – not only grief and absence, but also the day-to-day, the unexpected?

The Rendezvous creates a virtual/physical space where people can explore and share personal encounters with death. Media allows us to share on an intimate, yet public scale not otherwise possible.

Multi-channel video is mapped to human-scale plexiglass panels, illuminated with cinematic visuals. The visual language is grounded by constant reference to the plexiglass surface itself. Bodies are recorded while performing through the same material on which the projection eventually plays - creating the verisimilitude of present bodies in the space.

The relationship between video and audio story fragments in The Rendezvous is chance-based. While visual content is composed, the piece’s audio element remains fluid. The audio landscape splits between public sound design, and spoken narratives that can only be accessed privately through personal devices.

The Rendezvous is designed to let its participants expand their voices across different artistic mediums, while maintaining their privacy and ownership of personal narratives. Due to randomized audio, participants can add or withdraw their contributions at any point in the installation's lifecycle.

When the swing reenters the frame without her body, an instant feeling of loss, hopelessness and dissatisfaction is reached.

The Year We Make Contact (Gyre version)
“The Year We Make Contact” is generated from sound — an audio recording of a psychoanalysis session between the artist and a therapist.  Inspiration comes from a debate active in theoretical physics called the Information Loss Paradox, where scientists argue over whether information can truly be lost if it falls into a black hole.
