My Berliner friend Franz John is in town this week setting up his installation Turing Tables at the Exploratorium. The piece, developed in collaboration wih Ed Osborn & brsma, uses live data from global seismics events to create sound & image. This piece is as much about human perception and digital interconnectivity as it is about techtonic events. Turing Tables opened last night & will run through June 18th.
