Bit.Code

Bit.Code (screen version) is a project made for low-resolution screens.

It is devoted to the coding and decoding process of information. Black and white pixels, the 1s and 0s of basic binary digital code, are fixed in a specific pattern on vertical lines. Scrolling the lines vertically up and down, recodes the information of the screen, to display frequently used key words taken from recent web feeds of current news sites.

The facade will be used to advertise FACT events and allow interactivity by the public, who will influence its designs. The facade is funded by Liverpool City Council to providing additional lighting to the neighbourhood around FACT and attract tourism to the Ropewalks area.

Hand From Above

Hand From Above encourages people to question their normal routine instead of allowing themselves to simply rush from one destination to another. Passers-by will be playfully transformed by a giant hand from an urban screen. Unsuspecting pedestrians will be randomly tickled, stretched, flicked or removed entirely in real-time by a digital deity. Actions change depending on how crowded the scene is or weather conditions. Originally commissioned by the Abandon Normal Devices festival.

Nika Radic
Artist: 

Nika Radic is an artist and works in different media. Her main topic is the limits of possible communication: what is it that we can really understand in everyday communication but also in art. She has done several works that used facades and walls in public space that opened the wall into an imaginary space beyond.
This allowed the viewers to 'peep' into the building and see something that is going on inside… even if it was only an illusion.

Interactive concept and development: Yacine Sebti (BE)

Institution/Kurator:

A European Party

Nika Radic creates a European party which will be celebrated only on the screen: she films one to two party guests of each city and composes them as an ensemble in a party scenario.
In each clip a single person is at first filmed standing or sitting near a wall. The people then get ‘off the wall’ and start moving, talking, or dancing.
The single clips are controlled by a computer programme which allows the visitors to interact and manipulate the party scenario.
