Abstract Peripheries (up)

How does an AI’s abstract concept of two peripheral urban districts compare to that of humans?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly becoming a vital technological tool, pervading various aspects of our lives. Artificially intelligent systems are used to evaluate and categorise real data, and thus, ultimately, reality itself. For this reason, it is essential to understand the mistakes an AI can make and the concept of reality it develops. Neural networks are a particular kind of an artificially intelligent system. These networks can perform many tasks which require a particular type of intelligence - meaning comprehension -, such as identifying or rather classifying images, interpreting spoken language, or playing games. Like the human brain, neural networks are plastic systems which can change and adapt depending on the input they receive. This process of adaptation is what we call “learning”, or, in the context of a specific task, “training”. The design and inspiration for the name of neural networks came from the understanding of our brain. A long term goal is to be able to design an entire artificial brain. Although many AI systems currently have been able to beat humans in particular tasks, such as strategic board games, we are still far from constructing a general AI. Indeed, we have a limited understanding of how our brain works, and remarkably, also an incomplete understanding of successful artificial neural networks.

In this project, we shall train a neural network to distinguish between images of the urban landscapes of Biesdorf and Marzahn in Berlin. These images are taken from Google Street View. The trained network will ideally be able to say with high certainty whether an image from one of the
two districts is showing either a scene in Biesdorf or Marzahn. The interesting thing about neural networks is that we do not fully understand how they “understand”. However, we know that our neural network learns by developing a “general image”, or “abstract concept” of Biesdorf and Marzahn. Then it compares given images to this abstract concept in order to decide whether it is “seeing” Biesdorf or Marzahn. In this project we shall try to understand this abstract concept learned by the neural network. Thus we try to answer the question: What is Biesdorf, and what is Marzahn, for an AI? And how does the AI’s abstract concept of these two districts compare to the same abstract concept for humans? In order to answer these questions we shall use images of Marzahn and transform them in a particular way until the trained neural network thinks that they are images of Biesdorf, and vice versa. This transformation is achieved by introducing several mutations to an image of, say, Marzahn, and keeping only the mutations which, according to the neural network, are more “Biesdorf-like”, while discarding the others. We continue to mutate the image until the neural network is, say, 95% sure that the mutated image is showing Biesdorf and not Marzahn. Doing this with several images, we hope to uncover the AI’s abstract image of these two districts. We shall also go one step further and we shall sonify the AI’s abstract concept. To this end, we shall visualise existing musical compositions in the form of a still image. We shall mutate this image until the AI classifies it either as Biesdorf or as Marzahn. Reversing the visualisation process, we shall obtain a new composition which for the AI “sounds like Biesdorf”, or “sounds like Marzahn”. This will enable us to understand the AI’s abstract concept of the two districts also on a sonic level. (in collaboration with Thomas Hack)

This project is part of

‘Living on the edge’: when we think of spaces we tend to think of the space within. We leave the edges — the peripheries — where instability festers and sprawls out, for the rebellious or the adventurous. In cities, living at the periphery signifies both being an insider or city-dweller, but also being an outsider; not fitting inside for economic, social, or other reasons, and therefore resigned to the edge or the opposite — explicitly chosen to live there. Suburbia, or the Suburban Sublime. For the mind, the edge represents the grey matter — the cortex — where the higher mental processing takes place. This mental space is susceptible to being moulded dynamically by inner thoughts and external stimuli. To think about the peripheries, both in the tangible and intangible, is to explore the intersection between mind and space.
Students from the class of Prof Nina Fischer, Experimental Film and Media Art, University of the Arts Berlin, will be living and creating on the edge, both in thoughts and the periphery. The exhibition will conclude with a film and performance evening
event: at June 28, from 6-9 pm: „Habitability Salon“.

SINGULARIS (up)

SINGULARIS

The audiovisual performance 'SINGULARIS' deals with biological and information technology granular processes in a postdigital society. We undergo unconscious or conscious self-control through ‘Quantified Self Management’ and evolve into improved, elevated people. This process can be described as a singularization of man. Singularis is a Granalysator in which collected biological matter is scanned into pointclouds and through an audiovisual granular system is transformed into synthetic bodies. Through the Granalysator emerges an
artificially created mesocosmos. “A high-resolution world and the singularized human being are conceivable only in a complex network, in a web of interactions.” -
Christoph Kucklick. “The granular society.”

Realtime 3d audiovisual system created with HDRP-Unity and including working with 3d scanning and realtime pointclouds and meshes.

Molecular Machina - Value of Life (up)

Value of life - MOLECULAR MACHINA

Value of life - MOLECULAR MACHINA is an audiovisual installation that makes the molecular processes involved in Epigenetics tangible and accessible.
The project not only examines biochemical cycles, but deals with the awareness with which we confront living beings.

The environment influences how the genetic code stored in DNA is interpreted. This phenomenon and related ones are collectively termed Epigenetics. MOLECULAR MACHINA is an installation that makes the molecular processes involved in Epigenetics tangible and accessible in an audiovisual fashion.

Two genetic synthesizers constantly interpret genetic codes through sonification. One is interpreting real genetic code and shows how the encoded proteins sound. The other, based on an artificial neural network, is interpreting an artificial code and shows how the encoded enzymes work. A network of plants constitutes the environment that influences the genetic synthesizers through epigenetic processes.


First exhibiton: 4 plants did not survive.
Second exhibtion: 4 dead plants are exhibited, 2 living plants did not survive.
Next exhibtion: 6 dead plants are exhibited, how many will not survive?


Molecular Machina consists of various projects and workshops who deal with biological systems. See also Molecular Machina EnzymeAlgo and Workshop.

iPS Structures (up)

The relation between nature and art and the area of tension between naturality and artificiality are a constant source of scientific and social discourse. The principal and most essential questions arising are: Where are the borders and similarities between those seemingly disparate concepts? Can a true symbiosis of these elements exist, can they ever be in equilibrium?

"iPS Structures II" is the result of digital manipulation of two source images. One of them can be thought of as an induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell. Like an iPS cell, the iPS-image has been transformed into a primordial form, embodying an almost infinite potential for differentiation. The second image provided the nutrient solution and skeleton in which the iPS-image could multiply and grow structures. This growth was further stimulated and influenced by the application of digital image filters, serving a purpose much like molecular biological vectors. The endless complexity of nature is the result of simple base objects composed and manipulated according to simple rules in many individual simple steps. This image (one of a series of five) displays a tiny yet powerful fraction of this complexity.

This project has been be displayed in the exhibition “Infinite Potentials” SciArt Center at ArtCell (Cambridge, U.K.) and New York Hall of Science (New York City), in collaboration with the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute.
Corrosion - Overwriting Nature (up)

Corrosion - Overwriting Nature


Bio-technologies make it possible to alter living beings. Genome editing allows the precise modification of individual genes. Laboratories try to create artificial life in order to understand how the different components lead to life and what their functions are. For example, synthetic bacteria such as enterobacteriophage PhiX174 or Mycoplasma Mycoides JCVI-syn3.0 are produced. The findings are used to create efficient products that are useful for society - such as novel therapeutic substances or fuel. The idea behind this is to create novel biological systems in a planned and controlled manner. How do these novel systems behave when they enter nature and are no longer found only in protected laboratories or industrial facilities?

There are attempts to make mosquitoes harmless to humans or even to make an entire gene pool disappear. We will not immediately notice the effects of these actions because the process is creeping. Other natural biological systems can also disappear.

The industrial revolution, in which machines were created in moments and nature as well as humans were temporarily pushed out of their environment. After a short time, man reacted to the extreme air pollution with health consequences, forests died on a larger scale due to toxic sulphur dioxide compounds.
Nature and man were able to recover from the industrial revolution, the influence of this stage on the genetic make-up has not yet been researched in detail. It is very difficult to perceive specific changes because in nature genetic changes take place all the time and only become visible over generations.

In "Corrosion", nature has accelerated. Our environment experiences a direct change through a trigger in which natural as well as artificial genetic modifications take place at shorter intervals, natural and artificial systems interact or merge. As a result, nature dissolves because it can no longer regenerate over a longer period of time.

Nature documentations are manipulated by a digitally generated noise effect. Nature is digitally overwritten. The acceleration process of nature has changed the world so that animal sounds are taken out of their context.

Ctenoplastiphora (up)

Ctenoplastiphora

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Ctenophora
Class: Tentaculata
Order: Lobata
Family: Bolinoplastisidae

Species: Ctenoplastiphora

Ctenoplastiphora is a species of Ctenophora, commonly known as comb jellies, which comprise a phylum of invertebrate animals that live in marine waters worldwide.
Depending on the species, adult ctenophores range from a few millimeters to 1.5 m in size. Only 100 to 150 species have been validated, and possibly another 25 have not been fully described and named.

The body has adapted to the marine environment over the last 80 years and consists mainly of microplastic particles that have evolved with the jelly-like skin. It has several luminous organs both on the outside and on the inside of the body. It is believed that it uses its bioluminescent organs for communication and defense.

PlantiSonics (up)

The landscape of plant breeders in Germany is diverse. There are many medium-sized and large breeding companies which adapt a wide variety of useful plant species to the different soil, water and temperature conditions in Germany. Wheat, rapeseed and potatoes in particular have been intensively cultivated. Over the years the breeding techniques have changed and this has influenced the variety development.
Important characteristics of the individual plant species, whether for the producer, the processing industry, the trade or the consumer, have been identified and specifically changed.
There are many examples of this: Typical characteristics of potatoes are their susceptibility to fungi and pests, the colour of the tuber, its shape, size and consistency when cooked. Long wheat stalks often fold in strong winds and are difficult to harvest. For this reason, breeders bred varieties with the characteristic short stalks.
The breeding history of useful plants is very complex. With the help of sonification, the complexity of modern plant breeding in the 20th century can be portrayed in sound. It can be used to make large, multidimensional data sets audible and comprehensible in sounds and noises.
The PlantiSonics project is the result of the productive integration of artistic aesthetic expertise with the working methods of scientific sonification research.
From Arabidopsis Thaliana to wheat and potatoes, data records from the 'Bundessortenamt Germany and the National Center for Biotechnology Information were translated into sound.

System im System

Thalassiosira pseudonana is a species of marine centric diatoms. Diatoms are eukaryotic, photosynthetic microorganisms, who live in the water and in great variety of forms almost all over the world can be found. Diatoms are single-celled, but often occur as a colony
and its special feature is the hard shell that surrounds the cell.

System in a System represents an excerpt of a protein of clone CCMP 1335 of T. pseudonana.
The protein is visualised with a type system developed for my work GEN I.
Each character represents an amino acid and comes from a visual algorithm that I have developed.

In the sound composition, the individual amino acids in the form of their codons were entered and played back by using a gene synthesizer. The Gensynthesizer is developed to generate Sound with different or single DNA strangs.

This project was displayed as part of the exhibition 'Biologie und Bauen' at the Museum für Fotografie / Helmut-Newton-Stiftung, Berlin.

Score of Abstraction (up)

In “Into the Universe of Technical Images”, Vilém Flusser writes about different steps how we abstract the concrete and make ourselves subjects of an objective world. The concrete reality can be abstracted in several steps from four-dimensional space-time continuum to zero-dimensional points. These points can be recombined, calculated, and computed to form a higher-dimensional abstract reality. The objective world itself becomes a projection of these possibilities.

Complex behaviors, whether in feedback systems, chaotic circuits, social systems and/or computer programs are fascinating objects of study. The performance “A Score of Abstraction” explores the possible spaces of such systems. Based on Flusser’s thoughts, the performers design, build and program their own audio-visual/other performance systems based on a variety of devices, such as sensors, analog electronics, and different software syntheses.

GEN I (up)

Signs and sign systems, i.e. codes, are part of our daily life. Some of them are simple and intuitively comprehensible. Others are complex and difficult to understand for non-experts. Nevertheless they play an important role in our everyday social life. A prominent example are the various codes used in digital information technology. These have been developed and optimized over decades and can be considered a major triumph of the human mind.

It is fascinating to realize that nature was a pioneer in that respect. The genetic code, basis of all life, is structurally very similar to the digital codes developed by humans and by now we understand how efficient and highly developed the genetic code is. In our bodies as much as in the bodies of all living beings processes analogous to processes in computers, which however seem to be rather abstract to most of us, constantly occur.

Aim of this work is to enable us to experience this fascination. To this avail the genetic code is analyzed from the perspective of semiotics. Inspired by the code itself, a sign system is developed and used to display two important mechanisms of the genetic code, transcription and translation, as audiovisual processes. In particular this should make it possible to transport microscopic processes, usually invisible to us, into our macroscopic reality. This aim shall be achieved by an audiovisual room installation.

Molecular Machina - EnzymeAlgo (up)

Molecular systems are very lively, exciting and at the same time artistically inspiring worlds. The mechanisms involved are found in all living things that we know so far. They ensure that vital processes can work, with enzymes playing a very special role.
The different types of enzymes were studied, tested as possible artistic tools and their motor skills simulated. The BRENDA database supports us as an additional tool for the development of an algorithm of enzymes associated with our environment.
Based on a Turing machine, an enzyme algorithm was created which is calculated from the base triplet genetic code.

Reaktion ist ein kalligrafisches, filmisches und tonales Experiment. Der Film zeigt Tinte die sich aus einem Buch herauslöst und am Ende wieder auf einem Blatt Papier trocknet bis sich dieses auflöst. Die Makro-Aufnahmen sind unter einer Acrylglasplatten oder in Stoptrick aufgenommen. Ich habe Tinte eingefroren und wieder aufgetaut, verschiedene Tinten und Tinten mit Acrylfarbe gemischt. Die Reaktionen animierten sich größtenteils von selbst, da z.B. Acryl und Schellack sich nicht homogen vermischen. Der Ton soll die Reaktionen wiederspiegeln.
Eine Stadt verschwindet · sound-book (up)

Venedig, eine Stadt die beständig von Wasser- und Touristenströmen überflutet wird. Mensch und Natur tragen dazu bei, dass diese Stadt immer mehr verschwindet. Das Wissen, dass die Stadt sich im einem Auflösungprozess befindet, macht sie um so begehrter. Es ist der Reiz, es nicht greifen zu können, aber trotzdem mitten drin zu sein, das Durchleben der melancholischen Grundstimmung der Stadt.
Menschen wollen den Prozess der Auflösung festhalten, sie fotografieren, um sich zu erinnern. Doch wie sehen diese Bilder in unseren Erinnerungen aus? Welche Wahrnehmungsbilder entstehen in unseren Gedanken, sind sie hörbar und gleichen sie den fotografischen Bildern? Je seltener wir ein Erinnerungsbild in unserer Vorstellung aufrufen, umso unschärfer wird es. Auch die auditive Wahrnehmung ist in unseren Erinnerungen unscharf oder gar nicht mehr hörbar. Der Mensch selbst nimmt an dem Prozess der Auflösung teil.
