It is immediate, it has dimension. It tells you what to think and blasts it in. It must be right. It seems so right [...] You play God to it. But who has ever torn himself from the claw that encloses you when you drop a seed in a TV parlor? It grows you any shape it wishes! It is an environment as real as the world. It becomes and is the truth" (1996[1953]: 84; italics in original).Zenith with round screen - 1950

The modules consists of a special made circuitboard, programmed with the Arduino programming environment. A microphone is sensing the sound in the room, and triggers events in form of light and movement. All the modules are autonomus.It was composed a special piece of music for the wall by Ali Parandian.
  • He may have had a laser in his watch and a radio in his lighter, but even James Bond didn't sport gadgets tattooed to his skin. Now he could, thanks to the development of ultrathin electronics that can be placed on the skin as easily as a temporary tattoo. The researchers hope the new devices will pave the way for sensors that monitor heart and brain activity without bulky equipment, or perhaps computers that operate via the subtlest voice commands or body movement. http://www.sciencemag.org/content/333/6044/838.abstractAugust 2011, Science
  • https://news.brown.edu/pressreleases/2013/02/wirelessFeb 28, 2013In a significant advance for brain-machine interfaces, engineers at Brown University have developed a novel wireless, broadband, rechargeable, fully implantable brain sensor that has performed well in animal models for more than a year. They describe the result in theJournal of Neural Engineeringand at a conference this week.http://www.popsci.com/technology/article/2013-03/first-wireless-implantable-brain-computer-interface-works-monkeys-humans-could-be-nextBrain-computer interfaces that can translate thoughts into actions will change how stroke patients, paraplegics and other people with limited mobility interact with their surroundings. But so far, these devices have involved bulky corded equipment inside research labs, requiring patients to be tethered to a computer. Now researchers at Brown University have built the first wireless version. Like a cellphone embedded in the brain, their new implantable brain sensor can relay broadband signals in real time from up to 100 neurons.

  • example loved ones communicating at the airport: calling every couple of seconds: empty communication, micro-coordinationas compared to the dancer in Pedro Calderon’s story: to an external observer this seems to be an empty (meaningless/purposeless) activity – like our immersion in media seems meaningless. however, one could see this as the dancer explains when asked: as a form of pure thinking, a pure being-in-the-worldthe world is hypercomplex in part because of media, yet we strive for redundancy - which can be seen as a harmony of all parts (“this makes sense; this is beautiful”)so for example in relation to this particular presentation: I am trying to give you an aesthetic account of media life perspective – telling a good/harmonious story – I am alos trying to do this within the set limits of this conference (within 10 to 12 minutes), which is an ethical account of the MLP.this position – ethical as well as aesthetic, praxeological as well as ontological and epistemological – is what we see as the solution to the so-called “emptiness” of our hypercommunication: the position of the super-observerthe super-observer is a solution to Luigi Pirandello’s dilemma that every human being shares: we cannot see ourselves live. however, in our current media life, we CAN. we can, because media make visible what is invisiblelike art, as Merleau-Ponty observed, media put at a distance what is otherwise too close: and today this means: our lifeworld, ourselves.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raoul_Vaneigemmedia life is a life where we observe ourselves livethis in turn enables and powers a reflective position vis-à-vis our own behaviorour argument is that this position should always be aesthetic and ethical, like the Bil’in/Avatar example: it is fun and seriously consequential at the same time.4. and this is how we need to look at ourselves in order to be able to take responsibility for our desires
