This work of net.art consists of a digital art gallery of two lovers' correspondence from the 1990s. The twenty-five letters feature interesting interactive graphics, cryptic messages, and unique voyeuristic opportunities to view intimate messages sent between the two artists Entropy8 and Zuper!. The viewer can usually interact with the simulated object, environment, or representation. Doing so reveals love notes, messages, and other meanings. There are often personal representations of the two artists, either in the form of a rendered avatar of sorts, or actual images and pictures taken of their bodies.

 

Modell 5

In Modell 5 by Granular Synthesis (Kurt Hentschläger and Ulf Langheinrich) performer Akemi Takeya tells the story of her life. The four-channel video premiered at the ICA in London in 1994, where four projections revealed Takeya's expressions moving rapidly in different directions, with her voice also synchopated algorithmically, using a technique known as "granular synthesis" by the artists. The work has been described as "one of the most beautiful experiments in bringing digital video to a theatrical setting." Audiences are amazed by how the installation animates the subject's story is simultaneously jarring and visually arresting.

We Are All Made of Light

We Are All Made Of Light is an immersive art exhibition which exemplifies the interconnectedness that we share with our fellow humans and the universe itself. The releasing of the installation coincided with Seattle’s BOREALIS: a festival of light, debuting in October, 2018 in South Lake Union and across Seattle. The work was created by the Seattle-based artist Maja Petrić who set out to demonstrate the thought that we are all just individuals in vast and expansive universe, yet we all share some form of expanded consciousness.

 

External Cybernetics

height:200 align:left] Geoffrey Drake-Brockman is an Australian artist who explores a concept known as external cybernetics in which all of his installations require human interaction in order to function. Geoffrey's work in a sense pays homage to the work of Groupe de recherche d'art visual or GRAV from the 1960s. However, Drake-Brockman's approach to external cybernetics gives a deeper, more in-depth look into the behavior of the spectator/participant. He utilizes interactivity to create a world in which the artist is the spectator and the spectator is the artist encouraging creativity in the purest form. 

Floribots

 Floribots is a 128 robot origami flower interactive installation. It functions with “hive mind” characteristics by sensing the audience’s movement and adapting its behavior accordingly. The artist, Geoffrey Drake-Brockman programmed Floribots to simulate behaviors that are “both of an individual and a colony.” The technology of Floribots makes use of both software and electronics, allowing humans and machine to play creatively together. The artist installed sensors to detect the audience and in response the Floribots dance in waves creating a fun, interactive charged environment. 

Creative Adversarial Network

figure5_2-720x375.jpgA computer program called (CAN) Creative Adversarial Network has been making creative works that are being compared with art made by human artists, and it is learning how to continue to improve its works by having people judge them and learning to judge them itself. If a computer can make art on its own will humans artists become obsolete?
