The installation produces an arbitrary cut-up of the files currently being exchanged.

Mantz Gerhard. Page DAM. Gerhard Mantz is one of the artists, who became interested in the computer and its possibilities, after being already established as a sculptor. He studied at the Academy of Arts in Karlsruhe from 1970-75. He now creates his objects with the computer, independently of the restraints and limitations of the physical world. These objects, based on simple geometric forms, are developed as a computer-model and then materialized in the studio. But very soon he developed his virtual images, ambivalent between nature and artificiality. In the last years he added his Infinite Image Productions. Infinite Image Productions means a series of computer animations. In these animations a program produces images in the very moment you see them. While normal films play prerecorded pictures, these animations are spontaneous and endless. Every image is unique and will never return. > The Compliment (2008) and several other works presented in [Lieser] with large pictures.

Self-definition : "Mongrel is a mixed bunch of people, machines and intelligence's working to celebrate the methods of a motley culture. We make socially engaged culture, which sometimes means making art, sometimes software, sometimes setting up workshops, or helping other mongrels to set things up.
We do this by employing any and all technological advantage that we can lay our hands on. Some of us have dedicated ourselves to learning technological methods of engagement, which means we pride ourselves on our ability to programm, engineer and build our own software, while others of us have dedicated ourselves to learning how to work with people. Mongrel sets up strategic alliances to expand and contract.
Sometimes 50 Mongrels work on a project, sometimes one. The Core Members are Matsuko Yokokoji, Mervin Jarman, Richard Pierre-Davis and Graham Harwood even though there are many other people associated with the group—Matthew Fuller, Lisa Haskell, Carole Wright, Steve Edgell and Lani to name a few. (The group’s self-portrait under: http://www.mongrelx.org): Matsuko Yokokoji, Mervin Jarman, Richard Pierre-Davis and Graham Harwood ".
Note the wording "a mixed bunch of people, machines and intelligence's working" ! The server was not answering on 8/20/2011. And the social engagement of the group "Mongrel is one of the most celebrated and successful pioneering international multi media arts group based in the UK working with combining art and technology to empower diverse and marginalized communities. Mongrel produced projects, workshops and events around the world. Winning multiple awards and accolades along the way working with various major institutions and breaking down barriers to interact with hard to reach groups." (Page

On a Falmouth website we can no longer find: " Daro Montag makes art with living matter. His research and creative practice start from the premise that the natural world is best understood as being constituted of interacting events rather than consisting of discrete objects. This philosophical position foregrounds the significance of process and its residue. To express this idea in visual form he is particularly interested in the notion of indexical traces. In order to create this work the artist has employed the assistance of micro-organisms, plants, insects, toads and other living matter. His most recent work, commissioned for an exhibition at the Met Office, records the activities of the wind and rain."

The four frameworks of interpretation by Janet Murray
Murray Janet. Wikipedia.
< Inventing the medium. Principles of Interaction Design as a Cultural Practice. MIT Press 2012.It is an "humanistic enquiry", which "accommodates multiple frameworks of interpretation". Murray considers that all media converge into a single medium : "... I argue for the advantage of thinking of digital artifacts as parts of a single new medium, which is best undertook specifically as the digital medium, the medium that is created by exploiting the representational power of the computer". We remain rather skeptical about such a convergence, as we will explain in our transmedia note (to be completed at end of 2012). We are also quite doubtful about her analysis or the digital medium through a a four squares grid : spatial, encyclopedic, procedural, participatory. See illustration.
