IN CON with(15)…Neil Ferguson & Amanda Francis 230 Steps Between

adilade
“that part of town you don’t have to go to…you are already there, you know it…”
Gerge Perec

Fact: for over 30 years Neil and Amanda have lived 230 steps apart …

230 steps between… is a collaborative project between Neil Ferguson and Amanda Francis formed out of a series of meetings, writings and agreed activities exploring differing senses and experiences of being local.
What observations do Neil and Amanda actually share? How might the presentation of their selected images, sounds and objects influence what others, notice, see or think?
Yes, observations keep being made, but is this what being local means?
What habits do neighbourhoods cultivate? What do we notice or ignore? What is worth recording? The collaboration offers modes of interaction to “place” or “situate” the visitor.

Pause Translation – Continue Translation

Neil Ferguson & Will Peck …unexpected occurrences.




… hidden features that suggest our digitized machines
 
Act like our thoughts yet operate on their own logic.

Minute details of ordinary life exist as programmed data in the software we use daily. When things appear differently, they are NOT wrong….

”The work followed a trail of interaction between humans and computers. By passing texts, sounds, and images into computational languages that the program designers didn’t plan, the software used threw out unexpected information.

The projected images are scans of linear drawings initially made in response to sounds generated by a score writer program.

Later the words produced by the Image > Text translator application were fed back into a score writer software, generating a new sound file.

Next, this file was converted from .mp3 to .doc format and back again.

Within the exhibition space, the digital equipment created randomized orders of images and sounds, creating a short-lived iteration of a potentially infinite chain of translations.”
