Matter of Air

Matter of Air

Taking the atmosphere as its object of study, this project delves into an investigation of the present notions of nature intertwined with social and technological systems. It maps the layers and flows of the infosphere, tracing the immaterial work of social systems inscribing themselves into the materiality of the planet,…

Picture Sky

Picture Sky

In this project we create a crowdsourced image of the sky. Multiple observers are positioned at GPS coordinates that form the points of a grid. At the moment of the satellite flyover, they take photographs looking directly up. Their images are stitched together to form a single large image, opposite…

Clouds, from Both Sides

Clouds, from Both Sides

In this project the clouds are photographed simultaneously from the ground looking up, and from a satellite looking down.

While a satellite passes over our geo-location, we take a photograph looking towards the satellite. We record an observation of the clouds from the perspective of a human experience. Later we download…

Cloud Machine

Cloud Machine

The Cloud Machine is a personal device for weather modification. It consists of cloud-making gear sent up into the atmosphere in a weather-balloon payload. As it reaches specific altitudes it disperses Cloud Condensation Nuclei (CCN), heat and water vapor. Moisture in the air condenses into cloud droplets around the CCN,…

A different animal appears every time a person walks in front of the mirror.
The animal not…

Capacity to act in a world

Computers afford us the ability to run processes and execute rule-based symbolic manipulation. In computer ‘games’ or ‘simulations’ we can represent how real and imagined systems work.

Interactive installations too are logical systems which create relationships between a few interdependent elements, one of which is often the viewer. …
