Ghostradio is a second order cybernetic mechanism that generates random numbers by chance. This unit works on the boundaries of the causal world and beyond. We are publishing this random numbers datastream for cryptographic key generation. This will release the public from the current state of surveillance.
Ghostradio is the attempt to find randomness in the world of mathematics through the intersecting fields and time-critical reflections of situations. Randomness can be created within the border zone of our deterministic, logical system: Within the world of atomic decay, the quantum world or through the background noise of the universe. With the ghostradio project, we are working on the subject of chance. we won't use any of the anomalies or the boundaries of the causal world, instead we are taking the far broader approach to the possibilities arising in the definitions of string theory and the existence of the multiverse. The ghostradio method functions with feedback and quantum-effects, losing time and space relevance through the creation of transformation entropy with a shift to the boundaries of the parallel world within the same plot but with a different story, that of our doppelganger, the ghost.
Pamela Neuwirth lives in Linz and works as author, free journalist and radio editor. She collaborates with artists and writers investigating fascism and architecture (Demant revisited), art-brut and psychiatry (irren-Offensive), and the field of chance and cryptography (ghostradio Project).
Markus Decker is an artist and cultural worker based in the city of Linz. He is interested in interdisciplinary collaborative experience and in the praxis of the open knowledge and open technology circles. In recent years he is focusing the search for information processes and information theories about the entropy in feedback systems and natural phenomena. http://www.firstfloor.org/ae/
Franz Xaver has since 1995 been working regularly with the art-label KUNSTLABOR and FUNKFEUER with the first wireless internet service provider ”silverserver”. From 2003 to 2007 he has been running the medienkunstlabor in the kunsthaus graz. Since 2008 he is a worker in the team of the stadtwerkstatt linz.
