On Translation: Social Networks is an examination of the complex networks of economic, cultural, technological and military systems operating throughout the social fabric of the present day. The vocabulary used by diverse organizations provides a reference point for how each of these organizations situates themselves within this context. The project will be realized by 'scraping' text from the websites of a broad range of organizations. Vocabulary usage will be analyzed and associated with latitude and longitude data for a spatial reference to each organization. The four systems mentioned (economic, cultural, technological and military) form axes along which vocabulary usage data can be visualized. This project has been developed with the students at CADRE at San Jose State University.

Airports are awe-inspiring places: concentrated, tangible examples of the wider notion of "technology," the application of scientific knowledge for practical purpose; to travel from point A to point B. But scratch beneath the surface of these massive man-made structures and you start to find a much more intimate, human-scale landscape.  DataNature is a multi-site electronic artwork that reveals and celebrates the strange, secret beauty and interconnectedness of seemingly disparate natural and man-made aspects of Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport and its environs.

San Jose, SJC, Gorbet, Banerjee, art activation, technology art, airport, infrastructure

The team of Gorbet+Banerjee was selected as the Airport Art Activation Team for the San Jose International Airport. Our mandate is to: 1) create an infrastructure that will support an ongoing program of Art & Technology; 2) design and build "flexible technological platforms" that will enable a rotating series of artworks commissioned for the airport; and 3) create a number of "pilot artworks" using the platforms. At the Symposium we will present our research and designs, report on progress, and offer insights gained from the project.

Wetware Hackers Discussed is a responsive/reflective discussion of Hands-On How-To Workshops on Biotech Art and Wet Lab Procedures. In addition to the issues of using biotech within an art practice, teaching biotech procedures presents additional issues that differ from teaching within an electronic/computational paradigm. The panel will generate, problemmatize, discuss and record observations of informal biotech instruction, specifically responding to the Wetware Hackers ISEA2006 workshop conducted by the panelists.

 San Jose Semaphore, information theory, statistcs, communication, Ben Rubin

Can artworks help to reveal a latent "intent to communicate" in architecture, urban landscapes, financial markets, and computer source code? Ben Rubin will discuss his latest public artwork, San Jose Semaphore, and place it in the context of his other recent projects, including  Dark Source, The Quiet Ticking of Dreams, Checked Out, Open Outcry, and  Listening Post.
