Hello friends & colleagues,

I'm glad to announce my last artwork made for a site specific project.
 Replicating Architecture

For the series digital art in public space: "Replicating architecture"
is an interactive video installation that I'm developing for a
site-specific place. The time is variable. "Replicating architecture"
shows how the net art feeds (for example the rhizome news at:
http://feeds.feedburner.com/rhizome-art) can influence and reshape an
architecture placed in a real urban environment. In fact, through the
patch 'RSS Downloader' in Quartz Composer, I can manage the rss feeds
received from a web site and convert them into a sort of variable
texture that I've constructed and shaped as a dna structure. It is
made by aggregated lines connected to a several other patches that
determine: phases, amplitudes, light environment, colours, xyz
rotations, etc…
As the DNA configuration is vertical, I've selected a tower or an
obelisk for the projection. In this illusory dimension, infinite lines
generating emptiness and distances are "attracted" and skimmed one
with the others, fading. Thanks to the Net-Art news, the architecture
becomes an essential structure that draws a sort of fluctuating
original human structure always in transformation.

Best regards, Chiara.
