Jackie Liu is an MIT senior who is interested in the symbiosis of computation and softness. Her work involves media including, but not limited to, web-based art, painting, and animation. She aims to explore this theme, from the hyper-personal to the institutional, through work that spans both art and design. Love Notes is an web-based piece that explores the discrepancy between the static, objective form of data and the fluid, subjective models of our most personal experiences. The piece features an interactive gallery of messages that “might have been written” during a relationship. Collecting Facebook Messenger conversations between her and her ex, the artist parsed the data through a markov chain generator to create an eerily nostalgic narrative, falling somewhere between truth and fiction. She invites viewers to participate in this “cutting and pasting” of data fragments by offering ways to rearrange and decorate the existing messages.
Nicole L'Huillier Interdisciplinary artist, musician, and architect from Santiago, Chile. Currently based in Boston as a PhD researcher at the MIT Media Lab, Opera of the Future group. SOMETHING (mindscapes) is a 15 minutes sound piece created for headphones and accompanied by a light composition on a dark room. It exposes the capacity of roaming from one mental space/state to another via a binaural composition. The audience is limited to 6 people, each of them will receive a wireless FM headphone set and will be invited to sit on stage with the performer. The performance will be diffused via FM radio. The piece uses radio as a spatial medium for mobile spaces and transversal sonic architectures. So anybody outside of the room can also tune into the shared mindscape.
