We need more curiosity driven research.
Since 2004 Informationlab founders Auke Touwslager (NL) and Ursula Lavrencic (SLO) seen their efforts being adopted and appreciated by different fields and audiences. As a result their work found its way to an international art community and to science museums and galleries around the world. Most of the group collaboration is based on curiosity driven research which subsequently lead to a variety of (art)installations, publications, workshops and lectures.
We're testing a new exhibit, “Cell Phone Disco”—a visual display of EMR during a phone call. Coming soon in Eureka! pic.twitter.com/Q8tpABi9vG— Science World (@ScienceWorldTR) June 29, 2015
July 2015 · Our Cell Phone Disco installation is permanently lighting up Science World (Vancouver, CA). As a charitable organization it engages British Columbians in science and inspires future science and technology leadership.
September 2013 · Soba #nakoruzi has grown to a full sized room in Logatec, Slovenia!
Polyphonea / Prosthetic Spaces is an installation of loudspeakers and microphones that form an unsettling soundscape: different listening points give different perspectives on the same sound, the same music.
Cell Phone Disco is a surface that visualizes the electromagnetic field of an active mobile phone. Several thousand lights illuminate when you make or receive a phone call in the vicinity of the installation.
