Truth and the information society.

On May 14th the New York Times ran a story on a ruling by the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg to grant users the right to remove links about themselves. This case was prompted by a Spanish lawyer who wanted past records of his misconduct removed from search results. The “so-called right to be forgotten, or erasure” ruling poses some difficult outcomes and has some far reaching implications in terms of privacy, rights to knowledge and the miss-representation of our identities. While writing “from code to cortex to cognition” I went back to the link to check the reference but I was unable to find the original document. The link lead me to a different article where the content, title and authors had been changed. It seems content on the internet is forever changeable and it raises questions around the validity and authenticity of information and exposes some wider concerns around issues of confidence and trust.

What we leave behind is just as important as what we engage with in the present. The digital sphere forgets nothing, traditionally our sources of information were printed with ink, on machines made of steel and iron on substrates made from trees and organic matter, “the essence of objects”. The fragility of all those elements in synchronicity expressing the ideas and thoughts of humanity are vulnerable. The information society is vulnerable too, but to a different type of fragility, of being forgotten or being wiped away by the elements of nature, rather we are vulnerable not only to the dissemination of data, but also to how it is used and who controls these flows.

Wind

Wind is the flow of gases on a large scale. On the surface of the Earth, wind consists of the bulk movement of air. In outer space, solar wind is the movement of gases or charged particles from the Sun through space, while planetary wind is the outgassing of light chemical elements from a planet's atmosphere into space. Winds are commonly classified by their spatial scale, their speed, the types of forces that cause them, the regions in which they occur, and their effect. The strongest observed winds on a planet in the Solar System occur on Neptune and Saturn. Winds have various aspects, an important one being its velocity; another the density of the gas involved; another is the energy content or wind energy of a wind.

How to Eliminate the Hum From a Computer Audio Output

Step 1: Determine the source of the hum by eliminating possibilities. Check all the connections between the speakers and the computer. A poor connection can introduce a ground loop and humming.

Step 2: Wiggle the speaker cables to see if the hum is intermittent or consistent. An intermittent hum may be caused by cracked or broken speaker wire.

Step 3: Ensure the computer is plugged in to a grounded outlet. The three-pronged plug has positive, negative and grounded terminals. Without the ground a ground loop can be introduced into the audio system and cause a hum at the frequency of the alternating current. Computer speakers can add extra, unwanted noise picked up from other electrical signals.

Step 4: Move or remove any radio frequency transmitters close to the speakers. Wi-Fi routers, cell phones, microwaves and baby monitors are all RF signal generators that can cause interference in poorly shielded audio cables, which is interpreted as a humming sound.

Step 5: Add ferrite beads to the speaker cable to block any RF signals that cannot be removed. Higher quality cables often have the electromagnetic shielding material built in, but you can purchase snap-on ferrite beads for unshielded cables. Typically you want to snap the beads close to one end, the other end or both.

Light travels at 299,792,458 metres per second. In all practical terms if information were to travel in a vacuum it would travel as fast as light but realistically it only moves as fast as its method of transmission allows it to. It travels as packets of information, from one machine to another converging at their destination in one piece. Assembled, dispersed and then re-assembled.

Situations of encounter

cval12 MFA - the liminal presenceMFA Winter Seminar: Exhibition and Audience, 11 – 16 July, 2015

Versions of versions, the liminal presence of ambiguous perceptual fields and the potentiality that factual information may vary according to availability

situation 1 // 2015.07.11-16 / 24 Balfour Road, Parnell, Auckland, New Zealand Davis seminar room located down the corridor past the bank of elevators on level 3

"Situated along a long corridor is a room. A room with a window, a portal which peers onto those who pass it by. A portal for those to peer into a room where a meeting might take place, where knowledge is being transferred from one entity to another, where labour is being performed, where information is being transformed."

situation 2 // ø : project.03 : 2015.07.11-16 / Front meeting room at 130 St. Georges Bay Road, Parnell

"... nobody really knows how many CCTV cameras exist in New Zealand. As we go about our daily lives we can expect to be captured on camera every time we use a public space; like walking down the street, at a restaurant, the supermarket, on the bus, train, ferry, taxi..."
