Launch project

"Clearance is multimedia exploration of a state inbetween sleep and consiousness. Based a around a protagonist who believes he has witnessed a global apocalyptic event, the narrative unfolds through scrambled recollections, scenes and conversations. "Clearance" allows the user / reader to pan arround a barren rural landscape littered with stone carvings representing his hypnagogic flashbacks" (Vagus)

Fuzzy Dreamz - 'A journey into the psychogeography of dreams'

Launch Fuzzy Dreamz

A net.art project from fear to fun, drama, love, desire and a sense of wonder.
The moving images, soundtrack and voices are forming a 'psycho-geography of dreams'. Work in progress since 1996.

Artist's statement: In our minds we have private virtual museums, silent places for our memories, imagination and dreams - a provocative linking of nightmares and fuzzy logic.

Description of the work: In the beginning was the dreaming. In dreams we cross the borders of time and space. Time and timing is the medium of life. Fuzzy Dreamz consists of flashes from a constructed human gaze that emanates warmth and privateness, a provocative linking of nightmares and fuzzy logic. The medium is the messenger, and no longer the message. I use the cinematic syntax of montage in relation to synaesthetic dream experiences to discover our collective memory (a myth is a public dream, a dream is a private myth). Fuzzy Dreamz brings us closer to 'who we are', 'what we want' and 'what we see with closed eyes'. The future never sleeps. . .

"Mez does for code poetry as jodi and Vuk Cosic have done for ASCII Art: Turning a great, but naively executed concept into something brilliant, paving the ground for a whole generation of digital artists." (Florian Cramer). The impact of her unique code/net.wurks [constructed via her pioneering net.language "mezangelle"] has been equated with the work of Shakespeare, James Joyce, Emily Dickinson, and Larry Wall. Mez has exhibited extensively since the early 90s.

The Status Project

Launch The Status Project.

Our identity can be thought of as a portfolio of
both private and public contracts both expressed and
implied with other people and organisations.

'The system' consists of the commons of our
collective relationships.

The status project is mapping these links on a
personal and national level producing maps for both
comprehension and mobility.

"Since 2004 artist Heath Bunting has been developing the Status Project, an exploration of the inter-relationships of UK status including citizenship, education, finance, identity, social security, work and utilities. The Status Project centres on an online database from which status maps have been generated and brought together in 0-9 The System Deluxe to create a unique A-Z of UK status."

The digital tool uses google and facebook to back-check on personal user-data thus generating further intelligence. The questioning does not stop after one session, but continues via email and in real-life during performances, bio-mechanic aspect of the project, the machine interrogates, controls, instrumentalizes and decides about interrogated humans thorough human interfaces (interrogators).
