Bill Seaman (USA): An Engine of Many Senses (2013/2017)
• Days with event
Opening: Thu, Nov 30, 19:00
Venue: SCHAURAUM Angewandte
An Engine of Many Senses is a generative computational work exploring the history and potential future of the computer.
It includes a series of media elements that combine and recombine over time -- 3d images, 2d stills, generative audio, generative
media "landscapes", generative text and video components. The work has a series of internal rules that play out different combinatoric
strategies as drawn from an extensive database of architectural topologies and processes. In particular the work includes a
series of allegorical time-based images of computers as well as collaged images from the history of the computer and computational history in general.
