On Degrees of LIfe
April 4 @ 17:15 - 18:30
Degrees of Life is a responsive environment exhibited in February 2022 at ZentrumFokusForschung in Vienna. The project explores the interaction between humans and living systems at an architectural scale, developing interactive environments within an architectural space that learn, grow, and decay in relation to human presence and behavior. The space reflects on the concept of biomediality and biofacts, the possible applications of living technologies, and human sensory interfaces in architecture. Degrees of Life is the result of a larger artistic research context called Co-corporeality that weaves together architectural design, sensor systems, machine learning, and microbiology. The exhibition pursues the idea of interactive architecture as a living system, in which physical presence and new modes of observation are intertwined with tangible forms of computation.
