5D Space Machine

(Vortragssprache: EN)

subnetTALK 2023 on the topic of „all inclusive“.
Insight and dialogue in the field of tension: art, research, technology.

Suppose we are living inside the ultimate intelligent living machine:
I will present animated geometry films of the 3D representation of the Penrose kites & darts tiling, unit cells of 5-dimensional space, identified as Plato’s 5th element synonymous with the Quintessence & the Aether; also conforming to Henri Poincaré’s dodecahedral space as model for the Universe (1904).
The talk intends to reflect the paradigmatic shift from the space as seat of the gods that acts like a machine to man-made machines with godlike attributes like ethics and control.

Insight and dialogue in the field of tension: art, research, material.

subnetTALK is an open dialogue format. subnet invites artists and researchers to give an impulse on topics in the field of tension between art, material and research. This impulse is the basis for the following dialogue. Both impulse and dialogue will be recorded and broadcast by FS1. Rüdiger Wassibauer moderates the dialogue.

subnetTALK is a cooperation between the Center for Human Computer Interaction (University of Salzburg) and subnet.
