D-K ( D i g i t a l - K a k e j i k u )


D-K (Digital Kakejiku), which in English can be translated as " a moving Digital-Hanging Scroll", arises in one's mind, specifically relative to what one views. It is the combination of sensory perception and subconscious awareness. The changing scenery of the sunset, the "space" between haiku lines, the "space" between sounds, and the "space" between times - none are tangible, but all are part of experiencing "the moment". When experiencing D-K, the things that you see and feel all come from you. If they didn't exist in you, you would not be able to perceive them in the first place.

At a glance, D-K seems to consist of the visual elements seen on paintings. However, this is a completely new art form that uses a different communication style from other art forms which utilize the story telling approach. D-K is a sensitizing instrument that is generated by discontinuous data, and that makes us aware of the time, image, and the idea of a "living present".

This live picture is not continuous and has no meaning in itself.

Shu Lea Cheang

BABY LOVE is a National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts commission with support from Council for Culture Affairs, Taiwan and Taipei Cultural Center,TECO in New York in collaboration with SQV Design International Tatung University, Mechanical Engineering departmen eLife Techonology Innovation Center Sony Computer Science Laboratory Paris.

BABY LOVE is the second installment of Shu Lea Cheang's Locker Baby Project which also includes BABY PLAY (presented at NTT[ICC], Tokyo in 2001) and BABY WORK (to be realized). Referring to Ryu Murakami's noted novel Coin Locker Babies (1980), the updated locker babies are borne out of Tokyo coin lockers by DPT (DollyPolly Transgency) with genes extracted from deep-sea pearls. The biobot locker babies are the clone generation of our sci-fi fantasia reality, entrusted to receive, store, transmit and negotiate human memory and emotions. BABY LOVE situates human and its baby clones in a perpetual spin of fairground teacup ride. Love songs uploaded by public via the web and USB interface are coded as ME (memory and emotion) data for the clone babies. By taking a teacup ride with the babies, the ME data are retrieved, jumbled and eventually crashed.

Pigeon Blog

PigeonBlog provides an alternative way to participate in environmental air pollution data gathering. The project equips urban homing pigeons with GPS enabled electronic air pollution sensing devices capable of sending real-time location based air pollution and image data to an online mapping/blogging environment.

Unprepared Piano
Written by Michela Pilo

In Unprepared Piano, a Yamaha disklavier grand piano is connected to a database of music MIDI files appropriated and compiled from all over the web. This library of electronic scores is then “performed” automatically according to a simple set of rules. The musical scores found online contain a wide variety of instrumentations and are not generally intended simply for piano, so our Unprepared Piano is told to perform each piece from beginning to end by randomly picking and choosing from its different parts. This means it might play bits of drum parts and percussion alongside chords and melodies intended for the other instruments.

Using mobile phones, ISEA to the Globe--The World to San Jose will produce and distribute syndicated SMS and MMS messages to link participants and visitors to ISEA 2006 and to world events.

ISEA to the Globe, Jon Winet

Daily reports produced on site will link events in San Jose to subscribers worldwide. A parallel track of messages produced and harvested worldwide will bring international news and narratives to ISEA attendees.

The project highlights the ubiquity of electronic communications and the shifting locus of the Internet to mobile devices, as well as the activist, global "DIY journalism" potential of emerging technologies.
