    Gallery Exhibit

Curated by Ryan Bishop, Benjamin Bratton, Jordan Crandall, Edward Keller, and Jussi Parikka

The exhibition AUTONOMOUS SENSING in the gallery@calit2 features ScanLAB, a UK-based studio specializing in large-scale 3D laser scanning. The exhibition consists of ScanLAB’s video installation NOISE: ERROR IN THE VOID; visual works developed in collaboration with UCSD students in a workshop staged by ScanLAB at Calit2 immediately prior to the gallery opening; and the publication of Key Topoi, a reader that situates the exhibition in the broader context of theoretical inquiry around the conjunction of machine sensing and natural sensation. This conjunction emerges from combinations of different techniques: energy harvesting from artificial leaves; epidermal microelectronics; embedded sensors, including nanoscale chemical sensing; machine vision; deep and universal addressing protocols, and more — all supported by truly ubiquitous, networked computation. It leads toward unprecedented capabilities for knowing and experiencing the world.
