The workshop examines the following wide-ranging questions:
- How can the earth as a process be tempted to compose software?
- What signals can be transduced from the earth, using equipment of the earth, revealing hidden process and how can these signals be exposed and converted to brute code?
- Finally, how can a dark interpreter, a shadow substrate be constructed as an experimental situation, enabling earthy instructions to recode and give voice to that same landscape?
The whole earth process is embraced in attempt to approach these questions through the construction of a series of experimental situations.
Participants will learn how to:
- Measure and make audible and visible telluric currents flowing through the earth
- Construct an earth sensing glove to insert and feedback audio signals from the earth
- Build an earth antenna/radiomeasure electrical power from an earth battery
- Allow worms to compose poetry and listen to constructed voices from the earth
- Fashion fluid logic gates in the earth
