In every country framed pictures of its leaders are placed in many different locations ranging from the homes of its people to government offices, corporations and public places. In most countries leaders are very powerful people and having a sense of presence of the leaders bring more than just mere luck in getting certain things done.
“Framing Leaders” is a website consisting of algorithmically generated framed pictures of Heads of Governments based on their length in power, latest Press Freedom Index (RSF) and Corruption Perceptions Index (TI) for the country. Leaders are all about borders, power, constrains which the algorithm translates to ornaments, proportions, matting and darkness.
Music from nature can be very unpredictable. It is soothing at times, and not so at other times. When observed deeply, an evolving mathematical pattern is evident. Generator creates an evolving algorithm that generates sounds and visuals. Sounds and still images of the space are captured continuously at regular intervals and stored in the system. The receptary of time stamped material is used to determine a historic memory of the space which forms an underlying ancestral layer. This combines with the most recent materials along with a real-time analysis of sound levels to compile the generated ambience. As nature evolves and produces ambience for its surrounding, Generator grows by surveilling its location and generates ambience for the space from the space.
mvblogosphere is an attempt to track, map and analyze the exponentially growing Maldivian blogosphere, in order to draw a larger portrait of the social, cultural, political and economic structures they represent. mvblogosphere is also a venue to explore more information about blogging and what other Maldivians are blogging about, which in turn will help to strengthen the quality and quantity of the overall blog content, and may even revive some dormant blogs.
This project is a collaboration between Senn, Simon, Inash and me. (link)
An attempt to map photography and the dynamic relationships it forms with social, political and aesthetic systems.
A very large percentage of our brain is used for processing visual information; that makes humans highly visual beings. What we perceive from our senses, especially our sense of sight, transform into meaningful representations of the world around us. For a large part the saying â€œseeing is believingâ€ goes a long way, as people readily accept the image they see whether it is through their own eyes or though a photograph. Photography enables us to â€œseeâ€ and thus â€œexperienceâ€ a wide range of experiences through space and time without us having to physically be there. (link)
