IRRATIONAL COMPUTING is an artistic test of material, esthetics and
potentials of digital processes. The installation is based on
semiconductor crystals - the basic raw material of information
technology. The installation in the Project Space of the Ernst
Schering Foundation consists of five interlinked modules that use the
varied electrical and mechanical particularities and characteristics
of crystals and minerals and, through their networking, form a kind of
primitive macroscopic signal processor.
IRRATIONAL COMPUTING is not supposed to “function” – its aim is to
search for the poetic elements on the border between “accuracy” and
“chaos" amplifying the mystic and magic side of these materials.
IRRATIONAL COMPUTING was developed during a three-month project
residency, which was made possible by DOCK e.V. with support from the
Ernst Schering Foundation.
