Paragraphie is an interactive installation that interprets the rhythm and musicality of a writer’s gestures rather than the sense of what it written. A chair, a table, some paper and pencils are available for the visitor’s use. To activate the interactive device, one must get down to work: write, draw, scribble, tear, rub, tap... Microphones inserted in the table and amplified in the whole gallery space pick up the sounds generated by the viewer’s actions. Depending on their amplitude, these sounds trigger different video loops that are projected directly onto the table. Virtual hands appear on the writing surface, suggesting actions and leaving traces that are superimposed on those of the participant. This situation explores physical and mental attitudes that often accompany the writing process: a place of frustration and pleasure, communication and withdrawal into oneself. In medical terms, “paragraphie” (paragraphia) is an aphasic transformation of language that results in writing of unintended words or letters. This involves a control loss, a gap between intention and action, between thought and trace.

Listening Post is an art installation that culls text fragments in real time from thousands of unrestricted Internet chat rooms, bulletin boards and other public forums. The texts are read (or sung) by a voice synthesizer, and simultaneously displayed across a suspended grid of more than two hundred small electronic screens.

In the BPEC community center in Anchorage, Alaska, stories told by Alaskans appear on a plasma video screen and simultaneously emerge as real-time text transcriptions on a 150 long LED display. The text zig-zags indoors down a glass corridor, then veers out through the plate glass, dancing between the trees until it disappears out of sight.

Rhetoric surrounding the development of new biological technologies make us wonder if pigs could fly one day. If pigs could fly, what shape their wings will take?
The Pig Wings project presents the first use of livingpig tissue to construct and grow winged shape semi-living objects.
