Technoetic Arts: a Journal of Speculative Research

"The journal aims to provide a forum for the presentation of new ideas, projects and practices arising from the confluence of art, science, technology and consciousness research. It has a special interest in matters of mind and the extension of the senses through technologies of cognition and perception. It will document accounts of transdisciplinary research, collabora– tion and innovation in the design, theory and production of new systems and structures for life in the twenty–first century, while inviting a re–evaluation of older world–views, esoteric knowledge and arcane cultural practices. Artificial life, the promise of nanotechnology, the ecology of mixed reality environments, the reach of telematic media, and the effect generally of a post–biological culture on human values and identity, are issues central to the journal's focus. It welcomes speculative and anticipatory approaches to research, and the unorthodox expression of ideas whenever the topic justifies such innovation. It aims to communicate to an international non–specialist readership. "

1stAveMachine: a succulent garden of bio-electronic cyberflora

"Manhattan–based 1stAveMachine produces lush, hyperreal short videos that glisten with bleeding–edge CGI. The clip above, a music video for Alias made in 2006, is considered their breakout masterpiece: a succulent garden of bio–electronic cyberflora. Describing the clip, director Arvind Palep told CGISociety, 'we were looking at a merge between synthetic biology, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence and what could spawn from them.'"

Dematerialised space vs spatially embodied computing

"The term public sphere is necessary to a discussion of embedded networks because it implies not only physical space but also the metaphorical space of public discourse, social norms, interaction, and social sentiment. I want to make a strong distinction between what has been called cyberspace from what I will call the cyburg. Cyberspace is defined as having no physicality, no matter, and no Cartesian duality because there is only the mind, and communication is the only transaction. ("Ours is a world that is both everywhere and nowhere, but it is not where bodies live.") If cyberspace is dematerialised space, the cyburg is spatially embodied computing, or an environment saturated with computing capability. It is the imminent stage of digital media that places computation in all things around us, from our own skin and bodies (biotechnology and nanotech medication), to our clothing, to our cars, our streets, our homes, and our wildernesses. The cyburg is the opposite of Christine Boyer's cybercity and may indeed functionally sidestep all the dystopian visions of disembodied, disengaged, socially remote cyberlife."
