Rien Ne Va Plus

January 13th, 2009

“Rien ne va plus” by Nasan Tur.

In the sculpture of Nasan Tur the Roulette-ball is incessantly moving and clattering all the time. The decision moment doesn`t arrive. The endless spinning of the roulette wheel doesn`t allow the ball to settle down on a
number-slot, the ball keeps jumping in and out of the slots. The game`s key situation, which decides about winning or loosing, euphoria and dejection, does not arrive by Nasan Tur sculpture. It annuls the climax of the game and stretches the instant of tension into an endless absurd loop.

Tuttuki Bako

October 23rd, 2008

Tuttuki Bako is probably one of the strangest electronic games I have ever seen. It has low resolution LCD screen and one button. The only way to play with it, is to insert your finger. In some sort of augmented reality way, your finger appears on the display to interact with the games.

What it is without the hand that wields it

April 2nd, 2008

riley_c_harmon.jpgWhat it is without the hand that wields it‘ is an electronic sculpture by Riley C. Harmon.

Violence is an inevitable, mechanical function of the human brain, hard-coded down through time by culture, genetics, and evolution. Mediated experiences of killing change our perception of violence and death. As players die in a public video game server for Counter-strike, a popular online first person shooter, the electronic solenoid valves spray a small amount of fake blood. The trails left down the wall create a physical manifestation of nebulous kills.

Custom electronics based on an Atmega8/168 micro-controller are connected to a PC running a dedicated Counter-strike Source server. Players across the internet can connect and play live on the server, and each time a player dies, a java script written in Processing sends serial commands to the micro-controller, telling it to spray fake blood.
