USA “I Want Your Ugly, I Want Your Disease” – Lady GaGa. What are the grotesque potentials of disease transmission as a form of bioart and bioterror? How can transmission be framed as a form of non-enhancement based posthuman aesthetics making? Can intentional disease acquisition be considered an act of rebellion? Through palimpsests of media remixing, Transmission: The Art of Contagion explores the fears of bio-invasion, bodily cohabitation with contagion and disease as design.

primordial se in ert rverdi Turkey In accordance with its title, “Primordial,” takes on the concepts of “existing” and “persisting” of the universe in general and all matter and life in particular prior to temporality. The sequential viewing facilitates the viewer to experience a sensation akin to an affective altered state of consciousness by using rapidly evolving and perpetually forming visual and auditory stimuli. “Primordial” uses the digitally-altered sound of the Vela Pulsar; a highly-magnetized neutron star that emits regular pulses of radio waves and other electromagnetic radiation with a period of 89 milliseconds. The sound design in the video corresponds to the radio-waves emitted by this particular Pulsar.
