Scrambled Bites is a year long project initiated by the Western Front Artist-Run-Centre.
The central theme of the project is to collect data from sensors that are used in multiple installations (by different artists), use the Internet to translate and re-route this information, and then send the data back to the installation sites. In this way, the data of one art work informs the output (or content) of others.
The project is inspired in part by a web-article Entropy and Imagination by Christopher Locke and a desire to strip-back complex systems to reveal the basic underpinnings of data flow, exchange, and intersection.
It is intended as a forum for research, demonstration, and critical dialogue and includes three artist-in-residence projects and a variety of artist talks, walk-through workshops, presentations, streaming events, and a catalogue.
