projections with live, dynamic data calculations | dimensions variable | 2008—2009

Calculated numbers are all based on the span of my life, from birth to the present millisecond, and span a vast scale. This is an ongoing work, with changes or additions each time its shown. Currently, the calculated numbers include:

  • number of seconds elapsed since birth, and number of second remaining until my estimated date and time of death
  • total number of neutrinos that have passed through my body
  • total radiation exposure, including terrestrial sources, average human-made exposure and cosmic srouce
  • total heart beats, breaths, blinks, and complete skin replacements
  • number of humans born
  • mumber of humans died
  • number species that have become extinct
  • total number of meteors entering Earth's atmosphere
  • cumulative astronomical distance traveled
  • number of stars formed in the entire observable universe

programming-based digital projection and screens | 2009

A multi-location installation created in collaboration with the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, based on the genome of Mycoplasma Genitalium, a bacteria associated with sexually transmitted infection. This organism is currently believed to be the genetically simplest independent organism and is vital to research into creating and manipulting life.

A program slowly and randomly mutates the genome at rates based on current research. Changes in the genome are highlighted in the display. As the genome mutates, the colour slowly alters. Counters track the genome replications, changes and other global and astronomical phenomena since the program began.

dynamically generated projection | dimensions variable | 2008

Lines are dynamically drawn based on random movement, and programmed to interact with the projection surface by momentarily changing when a line crosses a groove (or other variation) in the surface.
