_addresses the phenomenon of our digital identity. knowbotic research 
builds data bodies from the many personal
traces we leave when using forms of digital communication. In this 
installation, visitors can activate the databodies
of several ART Basel -participants, while these data streams in turn 
trigger acoustic and optical signals, and thus provide a
spacial experience.

Viewfinder / by Blast Theory (London)
_promises  but ultimately withholds  a glimpse of an intimate scene: the 
inviting openness of a large projection
leads the visitor to a private view through a camera in which erotic images 
are obscured and fragmented.
Filmed continuously over 24 hours using a time-lapse technique, Viewfinder 
juxtaposes the everyday with the porno-graphic.
With its reference to webcams and surveillance technology, the piece poses 
questions about mediation,
selfreflection and the voyeuristic impulse.
