Light, Code, Calibration and Resolution.
Visual perception is now the dominant feature of contemporary culture. As we live in times of face recognition, Google maps, and infinite virtual worlds, we become even more dependent on new forms of knowledge based on images and automation. Yet we still remain unaware of what lays behind these technologies and how these images are compiled. In response to the increasing influence of imaging technologies and industry standards on human perception, Coded Matter(s) #9 High Fidelity examines alternative possibilities. How do artists and scientists hack, modify, and develop these protocols?
Hacked video projectors, programmed lasers or alternative screen resolutions provide artists with new opportunities to merge code, form, media, and matter. Presented as sculptural objects or immersive light scenographies, they manipulate our notion of space and calibrate human perception. Their aesthetic explores and crosses the boundaries of the image that have been defined by industry standards. What impact do these explorations have on our contemporary culture?
