BIOevents (2002)

According to Deleuze, the revolutionary aspect of the simulacrum is to introduce a break in the ontological and classical distinctions between essence and appearance, original and copy, true and false, the natural and the artificial.

Full Description

According to Deleuze, the revolutionary aspect of the simulacrum is to introduce a break in the ontological and classical distinctions between essence and appearance, original and copy, true and false, the natural and the artificial.

At BIOevents, organic shapes remain in a latent state within the webspace until they are carried by an interactor intervention, which puts them in action, transforming them into a poetic-visual image, which exists like a dynamic entity in constant metamorphosis. Emerging from manipulation, their beauty is a result of their morphogenesis, a process by which the viewer becomes a co-creator.

The prefix "BIO," which means life, is the main subject of this project. Scripts were developed around this concept in order to simulate life. Organisms react in a real-time enviroment; and the main catalyst, which is brought about by the user's movements of the mouse (represented as a cursor on screen), is the result of this virtual participation.

Different living beings each have their own unique characteristics; even an external factor modifies some of them. For example, the flow of time, which constantly changes their color through the day making a kind of mixed reality between the web and physical space and highlight a virtual reality illusion on the viewers, explore the boundaries between the natural and the artificial.
