Roy Ascott is a visiting professor for Design|Media Arts at UCLA, a pioneer of telematic art, and a seminal theorist in the field of new media.
Syncretic Reality and the Technoetic Universe
The convergence of silicon-dry computational systems and wet biological processes provides new media for all creative fields. The human mind and telematic...
I've begun to do more extensive research on ways of detection. One obiouvse option would be working with an Arduino and would make a lot of sense because it integrates with processing.
Microsoft seems to be working on a similar project under the name Wasp which boasts integration of such things like GPS and image capture. This devise uses...
So, I kind of overheard about this "secret" thing, kinda heard Oprah saying something about it. Having a clean house you can have a better life or something. Well I decided to find out what this whole thing is about. It's about the Law of Attraction. Here is the first 20 minutes of the docufilm:
In a way it's related to what I was...
So, for the past few hours I've been researching metaphysics, quantum physics, secret societies, mind control, teleportation, and Nikola Tesla. My objective is to find the relation to memory and to make a respective project.
The first film is a montage put together by a student with many clips from Waking Life and What the Bleep Do We...

Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth
The important concept mention in the Manual which we pay no attention to is 'synergy.' Coined by Fuller, synergy means we can not understand the whole by understanding it's parts.
Earth came with lots of room for error to allow for her ignorant inhabitants to evolve. As we've...

Protrude Flow expresses the dynamics of fluid motion of physical material, the dynamics of organic, wild shapes and movements of liquid by means of digital computer control. Protrude Flow uses magnetic fluid, sound, and moving images. Affected by the sounds and spectators' voices in...
This work is conceptualized as an "organic tower." The magnetic fluid, with a smooth black surface that seems to draw you in, reaches the top of the tower, spreading like a fractal, defying gravity. The form and texture of the physical surface of the tower constantly alter between the hard iron...
2002 M.I.T. FLUID MOTION EXPERIMENT
A fluorocarbon-based ferrofluid, with about 400-G saturation magnetization and low field magnetic susceptibility of 3, is placed within a glass Hele-Shaw cell of 1.1-mm gap. Magnetic fields are applied that have in-plane clockwise rotating and dc axial magnetic fields.

The communications satellite that will move information using Internet data-packet standards, allowing direct access to a network via satellite for faster and more flexible communications than current connections will be launched in 2008.
The satellite will be placed in geostationary orbit at 45 degrees West longitude offering coverage of...
