Installation | RIBL Research Institute of Botanical Linguistics

2017

RIBL Research Institute for Botanical Linguistics basic goal is to gain knowledge and a better understanding from botanical living systems through hacking activities. The Institute's concern is to investigate to what extent plants communicate with each other. How do they shape and maintain their own communities and collaborative activities? What conclusions can we draw from these botanical investigations for our human coexistence? RIBL was founded in the framework of H&D Summer Academy in Amsterdam in 2017. Founders are Lucia Kolesarova a designer of Prague, Dorian de Rijk an artist of Amsterdam, Daniela Rota a designer of Zurich and my colleague of m—d—buero and me.

The project became an ironic performative installation with a serious research vision. A tomato plant got hacked by receiving signals via sound waves. Those datas got connected via a Python program with bitmap pictures in order to visualize the plant's response. A photoshoot was organized in order to document the hacking activities, a webpage was published and we designed RIBL uniforms for the exhibition. This state of making and performing was both a moment of learning through making and sharing a statement. We were simultaneously inhabiting the role of Institute researchers and founders, collectively negotiating our identity, and experiencing the limits of staging the hacking analysis of the botanical landscape.

Currently we are working on a further developed concept where perspectives of posthumanist concepts play an integral role in knowledge production and design.

Installation | Future as Present. A capitalistic poetry

2016

Future as Present is a project that experiments with speculation in relation to economy and poetry. Two computational traders are speculating about word values and selling them to each other. Within this microeconomic system, the Communist Manifesto was re-written as a capitalist poetry. This installation was exhibited in the framework of Hackers & Designers Summer Academy in 2016 in Amsterdam and was a collaboration with Marcel Goethals. Currently, we are working on a further elaborated bot which process the capitalist poetry in a publication.
