Ecoscope

EcoScope

Converse with a chimpanzee about habitat problems, or discuss overfishing with a whale.

These are just two possible encounters in EcoScope, part of the Eco-Media exhibition in Germany (October 2007- January 2008). Produced by the international art collective Transnational Temps, this online forum also offers tools for sending quirky postcards to friends, either electronically or through your printer. You’re invited to come join the conversation. There’s content in EcoScope before you arrive, but half the fun is what you bring to it. Peer into the EcoScope!

Collabyrinth

ICO LAB
Reconstructing public space.

At first the software resembles many free online services. Indeed, the main function of this site for many will be its ability to produce files of a particular type (“favicon.ico” Windows ICO files). Styled after Photoshop, the initial interface invites confidence and goal-directed behavior. In its conventional service capacity it works well enough. And it’s free.

Whereas it may be appropriate for tools to maintain a predictable form, poetics thrives on hybridization, metamorphosis, and surprise. Like the rabbit hole in Lewis Carroll’s Alice, the sensible façade of the tool gives way to a curious labyrinth of images that were left behind by the site’s previous visitors. Confronted with these unanticipated corridors, disorientation ensues. This harmless entrapment calls for aesthetic interpretations that are typically absent from encounters with software.
