Meshy is an interactive installation and the next step in the Metabiosis
project, a collection of works about digital life and autonomous
creation processes. The project is a collaboration between Aymeric
Mansoux, Tom Schouten and Marloes de Valk.

A group of small devices, in which the digital and virtual obtain their
own body and become tangible, make sounds and listen to each other.
Euphoric noise and the soft whispers of a failed communication sound
through the space in which they live. You can visit them, and listen in
on, disturb or participate in their conversations.

The eight stand alone communicating machines the three artists have worked
on will show computing in all its simplicity and visualize a computer
network as a chat between machines . The eight machines are all built and
programmed from scratch. On an extremely basic level they communicate with
each other and the audience using only sound. Mansoux, Schouten and de
Valk refuse to confess to forms of digital art made of ready-made tools
for ready-made solutions. Although beauty often teams up with
mystification, it’s the other way round here. All growing
technologies around us, everything – behaviour and objects – supplied with
a digital layer – mesh networks – are at the moment just giving a glimpse
of things to come. The artists offer a valuable view into the bare core of
its system and aesthetics.

"meshy" is an experiment and a game for people who are curious about the
possibilities of standalone processes, generative systems and artificial

Mansoux, Schouten and de Valk are members of GOTO10, a collective of
international artists and programmers, dedicated to Free/Libre/Open Source
Software (FLOSS) and digital arts. GOTO10 aims to support and grow digital
art projects and tools for artistic creation, located on the blurry line
between software programming and art.

"meshy" is made possible with support from Waag Society and Amsterdams
Fonds voor de Kunst
