Varia Zoosystematica Profundorum -
Experimental studies in deep sea communication (2010)
Below 700m in the deep sea, the only light sources are bio-luminescent animals; one can assume that much communication here is acoustic. Inspired by the work of Flusser and Bec, we have developed models for this communication: agents/creatures send symbols to each other, assemble them into longer chains ('words'), and express these words as sound, light or motion patterns. Like some birds adopt melodies from car alarms, our creatures adopt morse code rhythms they may have heard from submarines.
Alberto de Campo teaches Generative Art/Computational Art at UdK Berlin since 2008. This is the first public group project of the class, developed in several coordinated courses.
