“The Deep Sweep” by Critical Engineering

Networked Performance Blog - Tue, 09/22/2015 - 09:16

The Deep Sweep: High Altitude Signal Research by The Critical Engineering Working Group (Julian Oliver, Bengt Sjölen, Danja Vasiliev) is an aerospace probe scanning the otherwise out-of-reach signal space between land and stratosphere, with special interest placed in UAV/drone to satellite communication.

Taking the form of a high-altitude weather balloon, tiny embedded computer and RF equipment, The Deep Sweep project is being developed to function as a low-cost, aerial signal-intelligence (SIGINT) platform. Intended for assembly and deployment by public, it enables surveying and studying the vast and often secretive world of signal in our skies. Two launches have been performed so far, from sites in Germany, landing in Poland and Belarus respectively.

Turbulence.org Commission: “text_ocean” by Zannah Marsh

Networked Performance Blog - Sun, 09/13/2015 - 11:11

Turbulence.org Commission: text_ocean by Zannah Marsh [Optimized for Google Chrome]:

text_ocean is an experiment in random access reading and text visualization, using Herman Melville’s notoriously impenetrable whalefishery epic Moby Dick as source material. Selections of the text are blown apart and become a dynamic sea of words, animated according to grammatical function. The user “reads” the text by ‘hooking’ and releasing words and, in the process, disconnects them from their original lines. Thus Moby Dick is slowly, randomly rewritten by the user, word by word, as she reads.

text_ocean is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
