Loving Vincent, final scene on Vimeo.

‘… and I wish you good night and good luck, with a handshake, your loving Vincent’

And of course in the night there is always Guston…

Couldn’t help myself… the last page from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry:

Self Set 2 (CSM)

[insert notes scans]

Feedback 2 (Mid-Crit) 

Explain and give an understanding of the human body to the future machines, so from a human to a future machine. The brief got renamed from Machine/Machine to Men>Machine.

Initially I did some more specific research.

I was looking into the Voyager Golden Record and the Pioneer Plague; that were sent into space on spacecrafts for extraterrestrial life containing information about humans on earth – to see how they did not use text but the binary code language and signs to explain things.

I was looking into how machines are given human features, in order for humans to feel a deeper connection.

Theo Jansen from Salazar on Vimeo.

Theo Jansens kinetic machines, a new species. My favourite quote from Jansen:

“To make my animals i try to make a new nature. I don’t want to copy the existing nature but it is hard to avoid that. Things like muscles, or the stomach, i didn’t want to make muscles or a stomach, but anatomy is universal, if life would start again, the stomach and the muscles would come back again. for instance, legs, they seem to be the best way to move things on beaches. legs are better than wheels […]. If you wanna make life, you could also have made static life, would have been a lot easier. But i like to make moving things. 
Evolution started the same way, statically with bacterium, and then bacterium starts to move, and then the muscles came, and something has to steer the muscles, which are nerve cells, and if you have a lot of nerve cells, than you get the brain. So, i think the path I walked, was the natural way of evolution.“

So so far, I am thinking of using binary code to describe things in the infographic. Other thoughts are: All machines are initially constructed by man, will they be made so that they can “understand/see” images?
This is some more research on what machines can already do – I use this as visual inspiration for the infographic.
Visually I was looking into some old machine manuals, where machines get explained to humans. I want to use a similar style in my infographic, that will be used the other way around: humans get explained to the machine.
 Parts of  print, sections:
1) the physical body
2) the emotional body
3) what the physical body does when in certain emotions
>>Material wise the infographic is on a transparent paper. I was thinking about what materials will be used in the future and how machines are going to get data and information, so probably there will be no physical piece and only a digital file. Thats why I put it on transparent paper to show that it will be “somehow present”, if that makes sense.
Otherwise I was thinking of doing it as an etching and using the plates that will be used for the etching (just like the plates they sent into space with information) as a part of the piece, so that the information is on a sturdy material that lasts for a long time.
 I was reading the book that you suggested “Speculative Everything” (brilliant!), and I see my infographic as a speculative design piece. What I want to make people think about is, do we want this future machine world of machines with artificial intelligence that are smarter than humans? I was reading a lot about what futurologist say, and what will probably happen when the machines reach a certain level of intelligence, they get autonomous and make it impossible for humans to switch them off and eventually will kill humans as the atoms in peoples body can be used as resources.
As you said in my feedback last week, it is a lot about the backstory – I am not sure though how to incorporate this backstory in my visual piece and how to make that clearer. I was thinking of maybe additionally have a small booklet that contains the backstory and explanations.<<

Self Set 2 (CSM)

This is a sum up of research-to-outcome done for the Self Set 2 Brief within Unit 10 – following Prof P. R advice here, to “just keep writing, about everything you do.“

So, all this started with the thought of how the medical human body is perceived differently in Western and Eastern Medicine. I was also looking into Medieval Medicine which was always connected to the Spiritual and Astrological.

The Astrological/Anatomical Man

The Eye of Horus (the second and third image is a collection from the British Museum), is an ancient symbol – the god Horus lost his left eye in a battle, but it got cured; – the symbol stands i. a. for healing and health.


Chinese Medicine Packaging

(The body as a machine)

Savings from articles, books etc.:

Always, Reason vs. Emotion.


Feedback 1

Feedback from friends

Looking into all of this, the initial brief was titled Body East-West, sticking to focusing on perceptions of the medical body. This research let to how the body is now seen as a machine that needs to function in order for “the self” to function, so moving away from the east-west comparison, but rather focusing on how as an ex. in the medieval times (example in images) looked at the body (ex. brain in the stomach, 4 body fluids that need to be in balance etc.); and from a contemporary point of view are obviously wrong; what I want to say is that when looking at those things now when they are proven to be wrong, how clearly they seem wrong, with a tension to look at them as being unintelligent. How can this reaction be recreated; nowadays – with the scientifically fully discovered and examined human body be re-created? I came back to the research of “body as a machine”, looking at illustrations by Fritz Kahn’s “Der Mensch als Industriepalast” (Man as an industrial palace) done in early 20C – around 50 years after the Second Industrial Revolution. At that point, the idea was to illustrate in the form of an infographic, how in the future machine world (feedback from week 1: artificial intelligence; “computers will soon become more intelligent that us”, 1HB (human brain) will be smaller than the processing power of a computer in the year 2040), in a world where machines with artificial intelligence live, to make an infographic for machines to understand the human body. This piece/infographic would be made by a machine, for a machine.
