Synaesthesia symposium

I learned so much in these past two weeks about Synaesthesia — fascinating and so important for us to think about our senses in this time of technological extension of sound, light, smell and so many other aspects. This was organized in tandem with the International Association of Synaesthetes, Artists and Scientists (IASAS) and the Building bridges Art Exchange at Bergamot Station Art center. The symposium is now online for those who missed it, or like me, would want to go back and revisit. Here is the link to the archive.


Noise Aquarium in Singapore Oct 11-13


Octopus BrainStorming @ Speculum Artium

Immediately after 24/7 non-stop time @ Ars Electronica, we packed up and traveled to Trbovlje, Slovenia to set up the latest version of Octopus BrainStorming. Mark flew in from LA for just this event and was there for 3 days only before flying back for another set of deadlines. It was the most advance version to date! Here is a short unedited video — this is real time, color and sound changes activated by non-verbal communication of Aleksa and Mitja who volunteered and performed for over 2 hours!

Fluid Visualization and Sound Matters

Just arrived to Vienna — getting ready for the symposium organized by Ingeborg Reichle. This project has its’ own momentum! I have to start working on the sound issues — visuals are no problem — gorgeous visualization by an amazing process involving biologists and animated by Martina Fröschl who is working on her PhD under the direction of Alfred Vendl.

Noise Aquarium premieres in Brisbaine!

These are the first photos we just received of the first version of Noise Aquarium from June at Brisbaine Technical University and – how exciting! Martina and Alfred Vend are here from Vienna to work on the project for just a few days only so this is such a boost!

Visiting the Pula Aquarium site

Could not be a better location for the Noise Aquarium and it turns out that they were just setting up the Plankton exhibition. The director was excited about the idea and I had a great tour and am looking forward to working in Pula!
