In Adriana Ramić‘s work A Worm Computer Better at Recognizing Sketches than a Human into a Fossil, morphologies of the sole survivors of a space shuttle crash, genetics model organism C. Elegans, become the key for an optical character recognition program in a dispersed terrain.
Harm van den Dorpel work is presented in various mediums; 3 touch-sensitive screens mounted on printed acrylic (Raspberry pi running interactive learning software), collages and heat reactive film canvases.
Translation from A to B
Is C a byproduct, noise, leftover or does it contain some essence of communication? Any change of structure and context transforms into new content (duh). It is a protestant assumption that form and content can be separated anyway.
Whatever makes sense has better chances of being true. Is everything that makes less sense then automatically more likely to be false? For sure (?) not. However, when an assumption is made lacking clear argumentation, the action is quickly dismissed as suspicious and random.
