Her work combines her experience and training in psychology, genetics and
art. She works with large data sets and has worked with both hard data
that is participatory and interactive as well as quiet meditative spaces
and personal experience.
from the project site: "Ecce Homology is an interactive installation that
bridges art and science through the use of dynamic media, computer vision
and computer graphics. Named after Friedrich Nietzsche's Ecce Homo, a
meditation on how one becomes what one is, the project explores human
evolution by examining similarities – known as "homology" – between genes
from human beings and a target organism, in this case the rice plant."
The Trajectory of Forgetting
"The Trajectory of Forgetting is an interactive installation exploring the
nature of memory, its creation, erasure, and transformation, in an
interplay between genotype and phenotype, and its centrality to our
construct of Self and consciousness.
The Trajectory of Forgetting - Database before and after a full day's
gallery interaction. In the installation, a series of images from daily
life, Alzheimer's genetic research and neuroscience, are converted to
sound, transmitted from speaker to microphone, then reconstructed and
transformed, tone by tone. The space between speaker and microphone, at
once physical, subjective and ephemeral, of signal sent and received,
makes the transmission vulnerable to presence. Any ambient sound
haphazardly or purposefully generated by a viewer becomes the encoding of
their presence during the transmittal process altering what is eventually
received. The result is concomitant re-construction and degradation, a
simultaneous gain and loss. This process engages phenomenological,
cultural, genetic and neuro-scientific aspects of memory and memory loss,
as well as the methodology and aesthetics of science."

> jason nelson i think correctly re directs the discussion to:
> "Instead I am interested in what is being created, in the

> Much of "new media" or "bio art" or "insert term and creative

> that technology is being used or how the art is somehow redrafting

> Re Drawing Boundaries
> -- Curator: Jeremy Hight Senior Curators: Lanfranco Aceti and Christiane
> This exhibition presents key innovators in Locative Media, New Media
> and Mapping in a show that works to display not only fields and works
> but more of cross pollinations, progressions, the need to move beyond
> labels just like the importance of reconsidering borders on maps, what
> space is and what pragmatic tools and previous forms can do.
> The selected artists are:
> Kate Armstrong, Alan Bigelow, Louisa Bufardeci, Laura Beloff, J.R
> Carpenter, Jonah Brucker Cohen, Vuk Cosic, Fallen Fruit, Luka Frelih,
> Buckminster Fuller, Rolf Van Gelder, Natalie Jeremijenko, Carmin
> Kurasic, Paula Levine, Mez, Lize Mogel, Jason Nelson, Christian Nold,
> Esther Polak, Proboscis, Kate Pullinger, Carlo Ratti, Douglas Repetto,
> Teri Rueb, Stanza, Jen Southern, Kai Syng Tan, Jeffrey Valance, Sarah
> Willams, Jeremy Wood, Tim Wright.
> The range of works in this exhibit have not only shown in Biennials in
> some cases or started whole fields of work in others, but more
> importantly, show in them a connectivity of exploration and practice
> between many people and works in differently named fields. Data is not
> just cold measure; place is not static; function can be many fold and
> startlingly so by intention. Space and location are not simply to be
> marked or named. There are histories, tensions, conflicts, stories,
> many types of data and ways of measure.
> This show will exhibit 2 new important artists/practitioners each week
> from several different fields.
> Exhibition Schedule
