2014 The Qualia Project
Interactive screens with built-in optical face tracking. The artworks react to face movement and gaze - the cyberscapes morph and transform when they feel onlookers' eyes.
Our perception of art is overwhelmingly driven by factors like where a work is displayed and who is viewing it. The evolution of modern art if anything has conditioned viewers to adopt the position that they can and ought to assign an interpretation of their own preference to any and all art. The Qualia project aims to turn this status quo around by empowering the artworks with perception of their own.
Equipped with computer vision technology and a symbolic grain of sentience, the artworks actively observe their observers and change their form and way of presenting themselves in response to their surroundings.
Qualia is a term used in philosophy to refer to individual instances of subjective, conscious experience. It derives from a Latin word meaning "what sort" or "what kind". This unfamiliar term denotes something that could not be more familiar: the ways things seem to each of us, to our particular singular selves. One of the broader definitions is "the 'what it is like' " character of mental states. The way it feels to an autonomous individual entity to have states of feeling pain, seeing a color, hearing a tone.
Instances of human consciousness are unique entities in the unvoid and the Qualia Project artworks choose to present themselves to each according to their own will, to each observer differently. As we continuously construct our own realities through the very act of perception, the Qualia Project introduces a turn of this paradigm, the worx actively instancing unstable, fluxuous, perception-elusive realities, inspired by the sciences of quantum chromodynamics and cellular biology.
2008-14 molding the signifier (_humane after people_)
Art/Science Augmented Life
90% of the cells in our body do not have human DNA - we are a mere host, a topography, for billions of bacteria and fungi. Much as we're convinced that our brains run the show, all the while our microbiomes alter our drives, desires, and behaviors to support their own reproduction and evolution. Just as biome networks, are complex data systems beginning to have points of view, and forms of agency that are beyond human comprehension? What exactly IS a human in the light of current science and technology? We need a re-definition of intelligence, agency, consciousness and sentience in ways that go way beyond the anthropomorphic.
"molding the signifier" is an interdisciplinary project on the intersections of art, cybernetics, ecology, linguistics and biology. It draws from a wide array of particular fields, including theories of consciousness, neurolinguistics, cell research and the study of mental illness. It offers multiple layers of irony and a discursive, confrontational and emotionally charged approach as to what constitutes (human) consciousness and how we perceive what is human from a perspective that is very sensitive to the problem of “uncanny valley” – language.
"molding” draws from state-of-the-art biochemical theories that approach the body as a functional conglomerate of myriads of previously autonomous biological agents. The body is understood as a complex ecosystem into itself, like a microcosmic galactical empire with vast holdings and expanses, with billions of different inhabitants, each interdependent but also fighting for power and influence, with consciousness rising as a consequent emergent phenomenon of this microcosmos.
An important observation is that body-ecosystems occurring in nature have no clearly delineated boundaries, a fact which is very counter-intuitive to our everyday experience of our bodies being “whole” and separate from everything else.
Body-ecosystems are in fact ripe with entry points, permeable membranes of every kind, from the physical to the psychological. Body-ecosystems are every-day at war, fighting invasions of foreign agents – from virii to memes, conducting vastly complex exchanges of biochemical information, and updating their microcodes and along with it the emergent “system database” on the go. But sometimes an invasion is successful, and the foreign virality ends up reprogramming the eco-code to serve its own purposes.
The installation deploys an external biological agent to infiltrate and disrupt the body-ecosystem of a virtual human, resulting in a state that we regular humans can perceive as mental illness. A well known game character has been chosen to be deconstructed as the actor, as that is how most people today are introduced to and come to know virtual humans. This is in effect intended as a social commentary on a culture that is hungry for simulated experiences, yet is stuck on its own evolutionary conditioning – the problem described as the “uncanny valley”.
Data from a contaminated biologic culture (a mold species growing in a petri dish) are continuously monitored via a digital microscope and measured with a set of bioelectric sensors. This real-time input is gradually interspersed into the neuronal logic that govern facial recognition (of exhibition visitors), and the virtual human visualization/simulation, combined with emotion expression and speech synthesis.
The virtual human’s apparent manifestation thus comprises a hybrid bio-electrical/cybernetic system – three virtual eco-bodies in the process of being infiltrated by a biological agent. The system evolves in time – at the beginning, the virtual humans have a reasonably high level of mimetic semblance to humans as we know them – they act as convincing conscious persons, engaging visitors in eye contact and speaking to them. Different emotions appear on the virtual faces, depending on the degree to which the facial recognition likes or dislikes the situation in the room.
These processes are over time slowly disrupted by the growing contamination, resulting in increasing levels of perceived digital madness. The virtual humans’ facial features start to twitch and contort with increasing intensity, and glossolalia (speaking in tongues) gradually phases out comprehensible speech.

1999 ID Engines #00 Das Egoshooter
A bold and pioneering work, inspired by science and philosophy which later in time gave rise to bio-art, homogene is an interactive installation that explored the possible implications of genetically combining humans with animal and plant DNA, at a time when legality of cloning, and violations of moral and ethical codes of conduct in bio-engineering were widely and fiercely discussed.
homogene is the speculative result of how synthetic biology might satisfy biological urges of the human species while complying versus circumventing societal restraints.
Would the possibility of bio-engineering and then a growing a plant that closely resembles your parent, help? The result being something that is not quite human but that is also not just a plant. It is a combination of the purity that exists in both, the essence of affection one has for their close relative and the serene joy one receives from planting a tree.
Speakers are built-in inside the sculptures themselves and an overhead camera tracks the movement of people around the objects. They react with sound, the expression of the artwork (behaviour of the soundscape) depends on the behaviours and choices of those engaged with it.
The observer becomes an interactant, and the interactant becomes a co-creator: the process of engaging with the installation results in a co-construction of the artwork (and of the artwork's meaning). The sequential experience of the work is different for each participant, and many facets of the work are not immediately available, but appear during the time spent with it.
