Two Generative Pieces: Port Hacking and DC_Release
Ernest Edmonds and Mark Fell
University of Technology Sydney and non-affiliated artist
Edmonds and Fell collaborate on generative performances in which sound and image are integrated. The idea is to operate with structures that can mediate between sound and vision, so that a unified work can be produced that integrates both. Thus a single generative abstract structure is mapped into sound and image to produce the integrated work.

Addressing The Unexpected
Di Mainstone
Fascinated by the evolution of the wearable artifact beyond our expectations of identity, enhancement and protection, Di's research strives to examine clothing as an instrument for creative social encounters. Utilising the body as tangible landscape, she employs a combination of malleable yarns, sensors, actuators and circuits to create instinctual interfaces that explore the wearer's desire to engage.
