From Analog to Digital, back to Analog

May 8th 2010

Bitquid is an installation by Jeroen Holthuis which shows digital information transferring in an analogue way, through the use of fluorescent liquid.

Nowadays the use of internet is so common, that people don’t realize what low level communication is going on between two different places in the world. The Bitquit installation, which was presented at the STRP Festival 2009, shows what it takes to communicate one single image, very effectively. It is interesting to see that there is a shift of "coolness" between digital and analog. It seems like we want to go back to analog features again.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
