Joana Moll is a Barcelona/Berlin-based artist and researcher. Her work critically explores the way techno-capitalist narratives affect the alphabetization of machines, humans and ecosystems. Her main research topics include internet geopolitics, data materiality, surveillance, techno-colonialism and interfaces. Her project Carbolytics is at the intersection of art and research that aims to raise awareness and call for action on the environmental impact of pervasive surveillance within the advertising technology ecosystem (AdTech), as well as to provide a new perspective to address the social and environmental costs of opaque data collection practices.
Andy Gracie: Catastrophe Jangled Hideously Out Of Process
The saturation of the media with post-catastrophic images has caused a certain desensitization, and at the same time we are fetishizing this kind of material, we want even more such thorns, our gaze falls into the trap of this reality that has become unusual.
konS ≡ MODUL
The platform establishes an ecosystem of creative activities for the critical development of the future, works on the capacity building and educating the communities for the creative use of high technologies, and thus creates an active network of transdisciplinary activities to promote access to sustainable social and technological innovation. Within this new territory and in cooperation with the 26th Festival of Computer Arts (MFRU), we created the konS modul, where we presented works of contemporary investigative art and focused on topics of artistic production on the crossroads (art-science-technology).
The installation uses muon detectors, which trigger strong flashes of LED lights and resonating beats of electromagnets. In physics, muons are elementary particles that, like electrons, are classified as leptons. On Earth, they are produced when cosmic rays hit the upper layers of the atmosphere.
The 8-channel sound installation links science and art. The installation's composition consists of raw sounds of insect and spider activitythat have subsequently been electronically processed.
Throughout art history, some artworks have been lucky enough to be understood not simply as art, but as useful tools, public spaces, cultural phenomena, or memes. Line Rider is one such artwork.
Biobot: Laboratory situation
Biobot envelops a concept of bringing not only new materials but also new processes into artistic practices and from that emerges a new artistic language. It uses scientific and technological development in a non-scientific way for the artistic composition of a biological and technological body.
A mobile ecological laboratory with the working name ISOLAB 3000, which will be equipped with systems for receiving, processing and visualising data gathered by remote sensing and mobile environmental sensor networks. It will also serve as an emergency mobile environmental station.
Gallus Gallus Roboticus
Emerging project: the website follows the work of speculative design, an autonomous moving machine that will lovingly take care of the chickens and take care of various aspects of the chicken’s needs and desires. Are machines capable of being more human than humans?
Plantporation / Q-modul
A multi-layered entry into the dimension of quantum entanglement and thus into possible theoretical consequences and interactions, including quantum teleportation. The idea is presented from a scientific point of view with various theories that never give us a clear idea of the quantum dimension.
