Transacting Remotely: participating in Transmute's networked presence installation

I participated in the Transmute Collective's 'Intimate Transactions' work last week. The project allows two people to interact with each other remotely through a mediated interactive experience. For my session I 'transacted' with Keith Armstrong who was at ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) in Melbourne. As the two of us moved our feet on the project's 'Bodyshelf' our virtual avatar was able to move around the screen (projected simultaneously in Brisbane and Melbourne). In this way our avatars were able to 'collect' virtual 'assets' that we were able to share with each other through 'intimate transaction'.

"FuckU–FuckMe(tm) for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT provides the most complete remote sex solution for the Internet and corporate intranet. Powerful features let you sexually communicate with your remote partner and provide an absolutely realistic sensual experience of a real intercourse. The basic FuckU–FuckMe(tm) kit consists of two hardware units – genitalDrive(tm) model M (male) and genitalDrive(tm) model F (female) and an accompanying software interface.The genitalDrive is an internal device in a standard case that can be installed in any free 5.25" slot of your PC. The FuckU–FuckMe software connects your genitalDrive with a corresponding unit on a remote PC using TCP/IP protocol. When you start remote sexual intercourse with your partner using FuckU–FuckMe(tm) the system will transmit all your actions to his/her genitalDrive and precisely reproduce them in real time. The system has intuitive interface and allows you to entirely concentrate on remote communication."

Televirtual Fruit Machine

This interactive installation, similar to video games, was presented simultaneously at IC' 93 in Tokyo and Multimediale 3 at Karlsruhe, linked up by the digital ISDN network, the player in Tokyo could join up directly with a player at Karlsruhe. In order to bring together the two halves of the same object, the two players had to co–ordinate their movements and interactions visually, within the virtual space of the game.

The work centres–on a virtual 'fruit–machine' that is controlled by users communicating via a ISDN network.The fruit–machine metaphor references the Paradise parable.
