Irini and Jonathan interview Deep Media Research
Deep Media Research
The collaborative project Deep Media Ecologies emerged out of Olga Panades Massanet and Vincent Van Uffelen curiosity driven investigation of the relationships between human bodies, communication and technology.
Olga P Massanet carries practical and theoretical research in the field of media arts. She works as a co-editor with Furtherfield.org while she pursues a practice-based PhD at Goldsmiths. Her research project looks into assemblages of sunlight, human bodies and machines. She is particularly interested on subtle modes of communication across bodies of radically different nature. She looks at the ways in which electronic circuits, computational systems, endocrine processes and neurological happenings intermingle. The tools she develops are speculations about the undercurrents of body communication.
Vincent Van Uffelen is an artist and digital craftsman who exhibited his work in UK and abroad. He studied computer science, media studies, and cultural studies and gained thereby a sound theoretical foundation that supports now his critical research of the murky entanglement of media, computation, and matter. At present he creates: devices to act in the physical domain, probes that reveal, things that meddle with communication processes, as well as objects that provoke thoughts.
