Light & Mood log (explained)

This week’s experiment is a Light & Mood log. It consists on monitoring both my light exposure and the variations of my “mood”. It is a practical exercise that I do as a mode of training. More than trying to prove any direct correlation between these two variables I’m trying to engender a more meaningful … Continue reading

Light Log Test

Finally the wearable light sensor with the SD card is ready. I did a test today for one hour. The values are represented in the graph above. I took 360 measurements (one every 10 sec).

Light Log (using Arduino + sdCard)

I want to create a week log of my light exposure. To do so, I will use an Arduino Duemilanove and the SD card module by Seedstudio.

Networked Limb

The Networked_Limb is a mobile device that allows you to network your sun exposure with a group of 5/6 people. Each of the nodes communicates to all the other devices via SMS every time it’s exposed to sunlight. On reception of that SMS limbs vibrate. Vibration across the network allows for a distributed skin to … Continue reading

Mood_Modulators_01. Project Description

Mood_modulators_01 is the first series of devices aimed at increasing body’s life force. They are being developed at the Laboratory for Mood Modulation that has recently been inaugurated.

‘An invisible network’

The package reached the target. The shot was inoculated and the implant attached. In response, at the Department for Peripheral Communications, we received another packet. The note enclosed reads… “A grip, a bond to all the other persons I offered one.”

Solar_bugs_01

This letter has been sent today to Annie Abrahams who lives in Montpellier. The letter is a communiqué from the Laboratory for Sun/Human Interaction at the periphery #19.

Virtual Fireflies Break Through

Virtual Fireflies finally actualised! On Saturday the 27th of July, after a whole day of events forming the Breakthrough experiment in Berlin, we jumped into this construction site to hang the first clusters. Peripheral worlds made contact and ignited a small caravan of mini-warriors.

    Olga carries practical and theoretical research in the field of media arts. She works as a co-editor with Furtherfield.org while she pursues a practice-based PhD at Goldsmiths. Her research project looks into assemblages of sunlight, human bodies and machines. She is particularly interested on subtle modes of communication across bodies of radically different nature. She looks at the ways in which electronic circuits, computational systems, endocrine processes and neurological happenings intermingle. The tools she develops are speculations about the undercurrents of body communication.
