Roberts, Margaret, Keenan, Jeremy and Bernaciak, Sonia, 2023, Show, Exhibition or Event, e-S.K.I.N:Emergent Sensory Kinetic Immersive Network

Abstract or Description:

RP2-9 presents an initial prototype of e-S.K.I.N - an immersive, physical embodiment of three simultaneous coding systems: semantic, spatial and sensory/tactile. This pioneering research goes beyond the usual concept of ‘input-output’ in physical computing design.

In this early stage, you will observe how a water tank with a network of conductive steel hairs and a floating latex skein in communication with a 3D projection engages in an emergent, complex and adaptive exchange. It is driven by and interacts with different forms of digital inputs that are sourced by latticed AI networks acting as a perception matrix.

Functioning both as a representational display of complex, adaptive intelligent interaction, whilst simultaneously a living pseudomorphic ‘interface’, e-S.K.I.N. mimics the common octopus’s intelligent form of information data gathering, with emphasis on ecological camouflage.

Wide commercial application expected: from textile design to re-thinking policy on human-machine-interspecies co-evolution.
