A Media Archeology of Steganography performed at Therapy Session at TENT
An interactive poster printed in 3 different types of invisible inks each with different activation methods. Steganography is the art and science of hiding messages in plain sight and invisible inks are one of the longest traditions of steganography spanning 2000 years of history. Visitors of the show were invited to activate the poster, uncovering/discovering secret writing and it's tactical and strategical use throughout history.
Eyesberg played a double function again organising and designing the identity for Zine Camp at WORM this year. We made the posters, flyers, website and navigational signage. In the same spirit as Zine Camp 2014, the aim was to make zines together, but also to provide a space to socialize and collaborate in an attempt to discover and foster a growing community of zine-makers in the NL and abroad.
Working under Eyesberg (Tim Braakman and myself) we organised and designed the identity of Zine Camp, a DIY festival with open workspaces connecting like-minded zinesters and newbies from Rotterdam to national/international zinesters and newbies. The aim was to make zines together, but also to provide a space and place to socialize and collaborate in an attempt to discover and foster a growing community of zine-makers in the NL. In collaboration with WORM, PrintRoom and Rekult.
Prediction TV is a television station where the visitors of MAMA have the opportunity to become news reporters for weather and economic predictions. This project is an extension of a research on the role of prediction and the mechanism of self-fulfilling prophecy in modern society. The program of Prediction TV focuses on predicting two chaotic systems: the weather and the economy. The first channel reverses common sense understanding of the causal relationship between mood and weather.
Mood Radar is a personal weather forecasting system based on your mood presence. On the opening night, visitors received a personal reading in a semi-autonomous space resembling both weather station and gypsy caravan that was parked outside of TENT on the Witte de Withstraat. Inside the Mood Radar lab-caravan a divining rod specially designed using a para-rational approach measured the body’s unconscious movements and bio-electric signals to draw up a map of the visitors mood.
Daylife Uncensored springs from my thesis Dimensions of Censorship and further investigates the notion of media censorship. Drawing from Foucault's rejection of the duality of freedom/repression, this work aims to avoid taking the 'either/or' binary approach in this complex and controversial topic.
