E-Static Shadows

Posted in exhibition, technology by electricdream on February 28, 2009

E-Static Shadows installation at the Science Museum’s Dana Centre in London from the 6th of March till 11th of March 2009.

E-Static Shadows is a cross-disciplinary research project of art, design, craft, science and technology by designer and researcher Dr. Zane Berzina, architect Jackson Tan and our international research team.

The E-Static Shadows project explores the speculative arena of electrostatic and its possible readings in relation to human interactions within physical space. It creatively explores the poetic potential of static electricity found in our everyday environments, surrounding our everyday interactions and translates this rarely noticed but omnipresent phenomena into human sensory modalities by creating a soft interactive e-static “mirror” which is a design-led synthesis of textile engineering, material science and micro-electronics.

Textile 2006 – Jean Shin

Posted in exhibition, technology, textile by electricdream on October 23, 2008

In this interactive sculpture, thousands of recycled keyboard keys are embedded into a continuous textile. The keys spell out a line-by-line transcript of the email correspondence between the artist and fabricators regarding the creation of the artwork. As a result, the sculpture documents its own making. Viewers can also type their own messages on the active keys amid the first three rows of emails. These new messages are then projected onto the opposite end of the fabric, thereby continuing the virtual dialogue. The project speaks to the pervasiveness of email in our lives while commenting on the fact that, despite the modern technology of virtual communication, our written language is linked to the tactile sensation of moving our fingers over an outmoded typewriter system.
