Irini & Jonathan will be interviewing:
Olga Panades Massanet & Vincent Van Uffelen. The collaborative project
Deep Media Ecologies emerged out of Olga Panadés Massanet and Vincent
Van Uffelen curiosity driven investigation of the relationships between
human bodies, communication and technology.

Olga carries practical and theoretical research in the field of media
arts. She works as a co-editor with Furtherfield.org while she pursues a
practice-based PhD at Goldsmiths. Her research project looks into
assemblages of sunlight, human bodies and machines. She is particularly
interested on subtle modes of communication across bodies of radically
different nature. She looks at the ways in which electronic circuits,
computational systems, endocrine processes and neurological happenings
intermingle. The tools she develops are speculations about the
undercurrents of body communication. http://virtualfirefly.wordpress.com

Vincent is an artist and digital craftsman who exhibited his work in UK
and abroad. He studied computer science, media studies, and cultural
studies and gained thereby a sound theoretical foundation that supports
now his critical research of the murky entanglement of media,
computation, and matter. At present he creates: devices to act in the
physical domain, probes that reveal, things that meddle with
communication processes, as well as objects that provoke thoughts.
