Glyph participated in ACVA Lab earlier this year. He's been busy with new work, including an installation at IBM's Liquidity Exhibition in SL. Cells – a collaboration with fellow Lab participant Julian Stadon –converts movement data from a real life colony of Protozoa located at Curtain University's Studio of Electronic Art, into an up close and personal exploration of life.
"This isn't just a simple RL/SL communication project it is literally real life mediated and projected into a new virtual existence. Somewhere in the bowels of Perth in the Studio of Electronic Arts at Curtin University, WA, Australia there is a lonely petri dish sitting on a bench. Inside this petri dish is a colony of Protozoa. Their movement is captured through video microscopy and then converted into a real time data stream and sent to SL. I take this data and map it to colour, movement and a melody is produced that is the audio transformation of the raw data."
The exhibition is now closed, but an archive is available through captured video and images.
