Exposé
pulse (2012) is a live-visualization of recent emotional expressions, written on private weblogs hosted at wordpress.com. Weblog entries are compared to a list of emotions, which refers to Robert Plutchik’s seminal book Psychoevolutionary Theory of Emotion published in 1980. Plutchik describes eight basic human emotions in his book: joy, trust, fear, surprise, sadness, disgust, anger, and anticipation. He developed a diagram in which these eight emotions, together with their weakened and amplified counterparts, form a three dimensional cone, consisting of 24 areas. The cone is the basic form of pulse, which can enlarge in the 24 directions of the different emotions. Each time an emotion tag, or a synonym of it, is found in a recent blog entry, the shape-shifting object transforms itself in such a way that the new volume represents a piece of the overall current emotional condition of surfers on the Internet.

Ein Werkstor in Ghana, ein Bootssteg auf den Kaimaninseln, ein Marktplatz in den Niederlanden und ein Waschsalon, dessen geographische Lage unbekannt ist. Webcam-Ströme dieser (Un-)Orte aus verschiedenen Erdteilen und Tageszeiten nutzt die Installation "Roermond-Ecke-Tropical Gate" von Markus Kison als Found-Footage Material, um die Orte auf poetische Art und Weise zu verbinden. Die vier Live-Videos werden dabei auf exakte Miniaturen der jeweiligen Orte projiziert. Es entstehen „Live-Modelle“ entfernter Welten, die wir dreidimensional sehen und anfassen können. Das Modell wir zur Bühne und auf fast magische Art lebendig, wir haben Teil am fremden Alltagsleben unwissender Protagonisten.
 
English
A factory gate in Ghana, a landing stage on the Cayman Islands, a marketplace in the Netherlands and a laundromat, whose geographical position is unknown. Webcam streams from these different continents and time zones are used in the installation "Roermond-Ecke-Tropical Gate" by Markus Kison to connect the places in a poetic way. The four live videos are projected onto exact miniatures of the very same places. Thus "live-models" of distant worlds are created, which we can perceive three-dimensional and even touch. The model becomes a stage or even alive. We take part in the foreign everyday life of unaware protagonists.

Exposé
versus continuously selects a pair of participants from the Personal Genome Project (PGP) and compares their genes by superimposing them on top of one another. Letters which can be deciphered in the two-sided projection represent identical genome base-pairs that both participants have: A – adenine, c – cytosine, G – guanine, T – thymine, n – so-called “junk DNA” or large areas that do not encode to proteins.
The PGP aims to share the DNA sequence of 100,000 volunteers with the general public over the Internet. In addition the full name of the participant, his or her medical history as well as other personal information is published.

Exposé
Using bone conduction, a technology developed for hearing devices, the touch echo installation transmits sounds of the cities which were devastated in the 1945 carpet bombing in the Second World War, through the arms of the visitors when they rest their elbows on the balustrade and hold their ears closed. Several custom-made sound conductors mounted to the railing send sounds of airplanes and bombs exploding through vibrations; it is completely silent unless you touch the railing. The installation touched echo is a minimal media intervention set within a public space. The visitors of Brühl's Terrace in Dresden are taken back in time to the night of the terrible air raid which devastated their city February 13, 1945. In their role as performer, the visitor imagines themselves in the place of the Dresden inhabitants who must have closed their ears tightly in fear to shut out the horrendous noise of the explosions 65 years ago. When one leans on the balustrade the sound of airplanes and explosions is transmitted from the swinging balustrade through one’s arm directly into the inner ear. Awards/exhibitions/presentations

Developed in the Digital Media Class at the University of the Arts Berlin. Realised with the sponsorship award of Saxon Ministry of Science and the Fine Arts, with friendly support from the Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau and Schlösser und Gärten Dresden, Geschäftsstelle Zwinger / Brühlsche Terrasse.

Exposé
A camera fixed on the concrete cube sculpture recognizes the presence of human faces within its scope. With a randomized choice it will focus on one of the bystanders and adjust its movement to his; tracking the eye movements of the viewer, a software computes the corresponding angle of view projecting onto the cube the very section of the space the sculpture is blocking from the viewers eye; thus making the cube appear transparent.
The video sculpture Durchsehen, Exp. 01 (augmented perspective) overwrites the common notion of perspective and plays with the significance of perspective in an art historical perspective; the work of art evades the gaze of the viewer or rather: the two are equated. The gaze of the observer coincides with the object of observance in a piece that also draws a line to former strategies of dealing with vision and depiction: the renaissance praxis of painting on glass.
Through the real-time projection on the cube a 3dimensional depiction of 2dimensionality occurs; the catoptric turns dioptric. The framing plane of the conventional video image becomes fragmented as work and reality intertwine in an augmented perspective.

  • Production: OLE display controll test
Exposé
Rings are well known status symbols, and the included jewel's weight in carat is a comparable value for the personal ranking of its owner (the largest two diamonds are in the British crown jewels). The Vanity Ring doesn't have a jewel, instead it shows the number of hits one gets, when he searches Google for the name of the person who wears it, a more adequate value in our time. It is personalized using a custom software, and after the name is typed the ring will change its display to show the personal attention carats, while every night, when it is inserted into its docking station the ring is reloaded and updated. Vanity Ring is a closed medial circuit project, where the ring has influence on the mass media and the other way round.
Developed in the Digital Media Class at the University of the Arts Berlin.

  • Visitors receive the wearer's image on their cell phone
  • Charming Burka performance at Boston Museum of Science, 2008 | Detail
  • Exhibition view: Edith-Russ-Haus für Medienkunst Oldenburg, 2008
Exposé
The CharmingBurka deals with Freud's idea that all clothes can be positioned between appeal and shame. The Burka was chosen, because it is often perceived in the west as a symbol of repression. A digital layer was added so that women can decide for themselves where they want to position themselves virtually. The Burka sends an image, chosen by the wearer, via Bluetooth technology. Every person next to her can receive her picture via mobile phone and see the women's self-determined identity. In the artists interpretation the virtual appeals can not be gathered by the laws of the Koran and so the Charming Burka fulfills the desire of living a more western life, which some Muslim women have today. Therefore the Burka is equipped with bluetooth antenna/micro-controller and uses the OBEX protocol, already working with most mobile phones. The wearer may turn the system on whenever she wants to send the image.

Exposé
The Gospel according to John (chapter 19, vers 20) tells that the inscription Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. Because of shortage of space this was abridged to INRI. Now, by using an LCD display and a ticker, the whole text can also be shown.
Additionally the actual stock exchange prices of the shares, the Vatican owns, are shown in another ticker below the INRI inscription. That way people are also informed about the actual secular influence of the Roman Catholic Church. Therefore the cross is connected to the internet via a LAN cabel.

Exposé
Four elected webcam-streams (Denmark, crossing | Amsterdam, laundromat | Berlin, courtyard | Holland, marketplace) are projected with the help of a mirror construction on four models of the particular places. To make the projection fit on the models, the architecture of the webcam-places was rebuild in a 3D-application and printed on a 3D-plotter, matching for the optics of the projector, which are different from those of the webcams. That way, the picture information is displayed on distorted geometrical shapes, similar to which it is filmed from. Developed in the Digital Media Class.

Exposé
For the exhibition Bilderschlachten, part of European Media Art Festival Osnabruck 2009, Markus Kison was invited to create an Osnabrück specific version of his work touched echo. The icons show the date of the first air raid on Osnabrück during World War II: 20.6.1940. Located on a bridge in the city centre of Osnabrück the public space installation is heading into the direction, where English B-25 bombers attacked from. In their role as a performer visitiors put themselves into the place of the people who shut their ears away from the noise of the explosions. While leaning on the balustrade the sound of airplanes and explosions is transmitted from the swinging balustrade through their arm directly into into the inner ear (bone conduction). Further information on the website of the Dresden version.

Bilderschlachten is presented in cooperation with COLOSSAL - Kunst Fakt Fiktion, curated by Jan Hoet. Commissioned by the European Media Art Festival Osnabrück. Developed in the Digital Media Class at the University of the Arts Berlin.

Crucifixion uses the possibilities of the modern time-based media, to tell the differnet chapters of Jesus' last day in a contemporary way. The in the Gospels described events were turned into shadows and are projected on a physical cross, sitting on an altar. The cross remains a untouched, static, ritual object, while its shadow is extended medial by the content.
