IF A SYSTEM FAILS IN A FOREST…
I am honored to have my work from MYRIAD included as part of the 2013 International Symposium of Electronic Art, held this year in Sydney. The conference ended last week, but the show that features my work still has a week to go. If you are in Sydney, go check it out because there are some fantastic pieces on display.

Communication is mediated by complex systems. Both machinic and biological, it is through engagement with these systems that our lives are shaped: we perceive ourselves and experience our world through the lens of the system. But what do these ubiquitous systems look like? Can we communicate with them, and what do they have to say? Do they even exist without our presence?
Interactive art explores these relationships through systems that require engagement to be realised, and increasingly blur the lines between author and viewer-turned-participant. If a system fails in a forest … addresses questions of communication, authorship and the temporal, emergent nature of art making in interactive media.”
