Image-controlled sound nanospheres

created in co-operation with Max-Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics Dresden

viewing and manipulating the atomic world - exploring the nano-world

The artificial construction, the artificial character of scientific images causes science to protrude deeply into the field of art. Similar to the scientists who work at the MPI CBG Dresden, plays with the categories of sound and image. The only difference being that we focus on the technology of programming as a form of art and as a means of research. We use preset material and re-interpret the same, or, provide new forms to perceive it, thus thematising the image- and sound-generating process of transfer itself. The objectivity of the images is questioned. The conscious artistic processing of scientific impressions is a fascinating vantage point for us. Especially regarding the impressions of emergent behaviour of the single processes during the image-generating procedure. The interaction of these process-parts, i.e. the structures and objects which emerge from their transfer process, represent, on a further level, a new modelling and moulding of the original material. We offer an acoustic and several visual perceptions for the reception of the nanosphere and the behaviour of mitotic spindles.
