Elsewheres is a modular, site-specific and procedural installation in which computer simulation becomes a medium.

From early computer simulations performed as part of the Manhattan Project to the significance of climate modeling for political processes we are basing our decisions on numerical models. The combination of the postulated wisdom of data and human agency has formed a bridge between the world and us, or so we believe.

Edged Into a Void: Sensoria is inspired by the seminal text Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl in which Harriet Jacobs, writing pseudonymously as Linda Brent, describes living in her grandmother’s garret before escaping to New York. For seven years Jacobs hid in the negative space of a pent roof to escape her slaver. She designated the nine feet long, seven feet wide and three feet high empty architectural site a place to transition into freedom. The garret was small and admitted very little light impacting Jacobs’ physiological state. This sculpture is a spatial inference represented by three objects. It is a set of geometric shapes tracing, deconstructing, and inverting what we know of the garret.

Resonant Hyper-Symbol Modulator Scapes is the virtual world that parallels MSHR's recent installation series Resonant Hyper-Symbol Modulator. The audio in this piece reflects the generative light-audio feedback systems used in RHSM and in MSHR's recent live performance series Resonant Entity Modulator.

From now on I will be posting content to my new shared blog

Follow us there!



Here is the presentation I gave on SNPs and ancestry

Here is the bricoBio Kevin Chen from Bricobio gave on DNA and DIY bio

Here are Yves Amyot from Turbine’s 3Dprinting


I am putting together a Stranger Visions workshop to take place at Studio XX in Montreal next weekend (Sunday Oct 8) in collaboration with Turbine and bricobio

Start Date: 
21 Oct 2013

The first year of Eyebeam's Computational Fashion initiative culminates with an exhibition by Fellows Carrie Mae Rose and Kaho Abe. Join the artists and their collaborators, Dan Steingart and Katherine Isbister, as they present the research and final outcomes on Monday, October 21, 6:30-8:30pm. Kaho's immersive project, The Lightning Bug Game, will be available for visitors to play. Come test it out!

About the Work




PRISM Break Up
October 3-6, 2013
New York, NY

Request for Proposals

On October 3-6, 2013, Eyebeam Art and Technology Center will host the first event of its kind PRISM Break Up, a series of art and technology events dedicated to exploring and providing forms of protection from overreaching surveillance. The gathering will bring together a wide spectrum of artists, hackers, academics, activists, security analysts and journalists for a long weekend of meaningful conversation, hands-on workshops and art installations.

Why does it matter?


Come by QF gallery tomorrow evening for my closing party!

This is the first in a series of technical posts I hope to put together over the coming weeks about the process of creating Stranger Visions. Starting from the lab end I will describe in detail how I create these portraits from DNA.

The first step of course is extracting DNA from a sample, that can be done with a kit readily obtainable from Qiagen, the “DNA Investigator Kit”.


Kari Mulholland over at TED made a short behind-the-scenes documentary about Stranger visions, check it out!
