On 2040

Collaboration by Amélie Gallay

The blob is a mysterious unicellular slim mold creature growing into networks. Famous for its supposed immortality, it has also been showing signs of learning capabilities. After many years of scientific studies and stimulation, it is finally able to communicate with us in 2040. By using a morpheme-based system, the blob can express complex ideas with its web-like growths. As seen in this transcription (to be read clockwise), each tentacle and intersections represent a basic concept which is then extrapolated into sentences and finally a full text.

Workshop with Florian Lamm, Alice Franchetti

Redefine/rearrange an old socialist photography magazine. Each student had one year of the magazine, they form groups and work on several years together. The text is completly ignored. Only the Images reappear. The are used in a completly different way then before: Which means they should rearrange, cut, collage them: make something completely new, out of the given material. In the end of the workshop every student had a clip-stitched Magazine of 32 Pages. They all be bound as a book.
