“Memories of Paintings” is an experimental dreamlike video by Thomas Blanchard rocking us smoothly through circular moves.
The visual compositions have been created out of paint, oil, milk and soap liquid.
The relationships in color, the interactions and the balance between them by Jean-Michel Verbeeck.
The series #WordsOfData by Aleix Fernández generates serene and repetitive audiovisual structures that are something of an audiovisual mantra, using thousands of Twitter messages as raw material. Each piece is composed of thousands of tweets that come from the hashtags #escape, #music, #tears, #light, #death and #feel, one for each of the hashtags used.
#WordsOfData is a series of medium format pieces that, with the use of mapping projection techniques, focuses on the contrast between an overload of information and the void produced by new technologies.
Each message is represented with a geometric figure, a dot or a line generally, with properties related with the message itself, like its relevance in the social network.
BioInspire is an A/V dome performance which has screened in the Institute of American Indian Arts (New Mexico, USA) and Fiske Planetarium – University of Colorado Boulder (Colorado, USA).
Artificial neural networks (ANNs), a largely used method in machine learning and cognitive science, are inspired by the biological neural networks, namely the neural system of the animals. The ANNs are composed of several nodes, layers and connections which simulate to some extent the message exchange and processing through a biological neural network. In fact, ANNs tries to find an approximate functions that evaluate all the inputs in order to give a meaningful output concerning the data. Each function is specific to the learned data according to which the form of the ANN is shaped. So, ANN adapt itself to learn from the data, to mine it; it then turns into a generic processing model that evaluates, classify, categorize the inputs, likewise our brain, neurons and synapses.
As the quantity of layers, nodes and connections in an artificial neural network increase, the structure gets more complex. Getting the inspiration from the structure of an ANN, our aim is to redefine the complexity of a neural network using abstract objects and sound referring to it’s natural form.

It’s based on the idea of progress and technological development. The term ‘technium’ was coined by Kevin Kelly to describe technology as the emerging seventh kingdom of life on earth.
