January 5 2008 2PM: preview for noise_produce/ materiality/
[in]tolerance with Martin Howse, Martin Kuentz

Noise embeds both materiality and equation, equally embracing graphics
through circuit diagrams and a wider industrial economy. We hesitate
to call our interest electronics; an obsession rather with divination
masquerading as detection, with substance and with an interrogation of
the material. Noise acts as a revelation, precisely exposing the dark
side of over-engineered social acts, manufacture and consumption; all
embodied within the blackboxed bug chip.
Noise is elaborated on a path which leads from household materials,
such as tin foil, baking soda and coal, through to more esoteric
matter; large-scale experiments harking back to earlier times of
invention. We're at home with Maxwell and his demons, thermodynamic
exploration [propane], and with de Forest [the holy
The noise_produce workshop will present an active, audio driven
examination of noise and materiality, interfacing diverse boundary
materials in a crashed laboratory; petri dish electro-constructions as
contemporary noise performance modules.
