In his work 02.205, Christian Brems investigates and speculates on recent findings in bio-acoustics, showing plant roots are able to receptively hear the purely acoustic sound of running water, as well as create ultrasonic emissions of irregular clicking sounds.

Albedo suits are designed to increase the solar energy reflectivity (albedo value) in the forests; this way cooling the climate and mitigating the climate change. The work plays with the notion of geoengineering and forest management as a geoengineering project. This particular video presents the albedo suit for a logger.

Flyprinter nikolaj

2016

The Fly Printer – Extended investigates the increasing interest of the artist in the merger of a human, a non-human, and an artificial entity.

The work is developed based on the previous versions of the Fly Printer. It contains biological organisms -fruit flies- that are treated in the work as image producing technology, but additionally it includes intelligent system with camera and convolutional neuronal network (CNN) for image recognition and interpretation. In other words, this artwork creates an autonomous system that firstly produces images; secondly, a machine vision...

We are continually striving to be objective, we try to look from a distance, and we develop all kinds of technology to accomplish that, which is of course very interesting, but in a way this objectivity is something we know we will never really achieve, it’s a bit of an illusion. – Lawrence Malstaf

Folding is a research project which employs new technology, such as 3D scanning and modeling software in combination with traditional origami techniques, in order to explore the boundary between representation and abstraction. The aim is to build up a collection of life-size...

The installation consists of a looped video projection and five neon signs. The film is set in a region that has been subject to exploitation of natural resources since the early 1600s–the Arctic archipelago, and former no-man’s land, of Svalbard. The neon signs evoke symbols used for controlling weather indoors; heating, cooling, humidification, air circulation and purification; addressing the homogenized air conditioned indoor spaces many of us inhabit.

The first snapshots taken from space showed the earth as a cloud covered planet, with clouds enveloping about two thirds...

Installaatio wunderkammer

The underlying notion of Kristiina Ljokkoi’s work Jälke(e)ni is the traditional Garden of Life and Death. It suggests that life is a continuum both in the spirit of eastern philosophy and also in the light of ecosystem thinking. The work consists of a quantity of soil that would be the end result of composting the artist herself. The soil serves as a substratum for plants, the seeds of which are part of the artist’s diet.

Life Studies is a city living inside a glass terrarium, forsaken by humans. The city is not without life, however, as the absence of people allows other...

Plastic Imaginaries portrays a ragpicker and a composter that suggest different ways of living with or without plastics. They live in a late plastic age, where previous visions of ridding humans from restrictions posed by nature through the use of technologies have become troubled. In this late plastic age the dependency on plastics is severe at the same time as the resources to make it are running out. Meanwhile, the accumulated plastic waste washes up as a new kind of resource, worry, and curiosity.

Although the narrative is a speculative fiction it draws on ethnographic material...

The (sonic) Wild Code group participated in Field_Notes - HYBRID MATTERs to investigate notions of coexistence, communication and potentials for interaction in a hybrid ecology. By immersing themselves into the vast and raw landscape of Lapland around Kilpisjärvi, the group researched and tested possibilities to enable the landscape to speak for itself. Methods included listening to the land, communicating to the land, analyzing the heard and the code and finding common and uncommon denominators.

The group was hosted by Antye Greie with participants Till Bovermann, Dinah Bird, Anja...

What kind of life forms will survive with us or without us in other kinds of conditions than what we currently have on planet Earth? What kind of conditions and organisms are forming at the intersection of technological and biological evolution and human agency?

The project (in progress) investigates Normann fir Christmas tree as a postnatural organism and exposes it to changing conditions, such as micro gravitation with continuous rotational movement. The underlying idea speculates whether or not Christmas trees can survive in changing environmental conditions; on a different planet,...

Wolf traces

Wolfland is part of Jälestää - Tracing, an Ongoing artistic research exploring realm of hybrid territory in between human and non human.

How can we see the presence and impact of animals through their tracks, movements and actions in the changing environment. What is the relationship between animals and human beings, and what is their relationship to the landscape.

An animal in nature in its own environment is a mobile force whose influence extends far and wide. Wolves move over large areas and they affect their environment.  We humans are tied to our own perspective of...

Yeastograms are living images on petri dishes. They are made of yeast cells cultivated on growing mediums used in basic microbiology. The images are produced by exposing a rastered image with Ultraviolet LED lamps onto the yeast. The UV-lights kills the part of the yeast cells which are not covered by the stencil during the 24-hour exposure process. After some growing time, the pictures emerge from the surviving yeast cells.

The main theme of her yeastograms are the strangers who she has photographed on the city streets. After the exposure she leaves the images without disturbing their...
