“E-Camera” is communicating with biometric sensors that are attached to the photographer’s body. These sensors measure the photographer’s heart rate, body-temperature and galvanic value when taking a picture.
All of these data strongly reflect the photographer’s emotions.
The use of “E-Camera” enables the photographer to reflect on her emotions and to actively embody them into the creative process of photography.
Floral Automaton is a sculptural device that grows flowers digitally. Using various sensors taken from Smart Cities technologies, it reacts and adapts itself to its environment in real time. Sensors are instruments that translate chemical or mechanical stimuli such as light, temperature, gas concentration, speed and vibration across analog and digital sensors into electrical resistors and voltage signal.
Floral Automaton explores the implications when environments become programmable and are made to be operational through sensor technologies. The information collected by the device becomes a material to mimic biological processes and question the authenticity of our surroundings.
The Fountains installation draws on open data sets of water pollution selected from specific locations around the globe to create data visualizations that transform the 3D scanned, virtual skin surfaces of people’s bodies to reflect the quality of their local water sources.
The installation features audio recordings of interviews of people adversely affected by water pollution, as well as people living with fair water conditions.
“Still touchable?” explores our relationships to information. The physical relationships we had with the media, such as letters, postcards, newspapers, CD, which started to disappear as the touch, feel, memories and emotions we had with them are disappearing.
Encountering this paradox of existence, we invite people to reflect on our physical relationship to the information: Who replaced our bookstores, record shop and post offices? And how? Can we recuperate our physical relationships with the information nowadays? Can they still be tangible and interactable?

Eclipse Open Source project status
Provide an Open Source platform hosted by the Eclipse Foundation, inside
the Eclipse IoT Working Group. This task will coordinate and contribute to
the creation and development of the open source community.
First year is dedicated:
To the formalization of the perimeter of the open source platform including
connections with other existing open source projects,
To create the AGILE open source project to publish the initial contribution.
Trademark Transfer or new Name creation: Eclipse AGAIL
Intellectual Property review
The remaining time of the project will be dedicated:
• to publish new component,
• to improve the existing components and
• to grow the community through the project.
All the necessary actions to prepare for long term sustainability of the AGILE project
(including best practices for build and test, …) will be also be addressed and coordinated.
Adaptation was a competition and an event aimed at envisioning the
interstices of art and technology, utilizing the Internet of Things.
The event was scheduled to take place in Berlin, Germany during the
summer of 2017.
Artists were invited to submit their proposal for one of the four
different categories of the competition:
Quantified Self supported by BioAssist
Interactive Spaces supported by Atos – Worldline
Environment & Data supported by FBK – Create-Net
Smart Cities supported by Libelium
