INFOCRASH: 48h FRI 17:00 – SUN 17:00 // Riverbank
Piss(on)Logic (PoL) for SWST48 showcases the first prototype city-wide leaky Turing-complete computational architecture. Technology and computation is to be no longer constrained and contained within the geo-logic but opened to buildings, earth and human/animal pissoir flow as both logical structuring and information/bits for a genuinely promiscuous and psychogeophysical operating system.
PoL prototypes simple cast ungendered urinary logic gates (XOR/AND) embedded in river banks and city streets; these form the building blocks for simple binary adders, cascaded to form pissed compilers and assemblers. During the SWST48 action PoL is open to the re-placement and re-construction of pissoir gates at will.
Martin Howse is occupied with an artistic investigation of the links between the earth, software, and the human psyche (psychogeophysics), proposing a return to animism within a critical misuse of scientific technology.
