still sensing dust and since some months other air related data for sonification via analog modular synthesizers, using arduino for translation of sensor data into analog control voltages to interfer into modulation groups of the analog sound engine. last days visualization layer implemented – analog composite video direct from the modular rack. direct visualization of [...]

Besides working on data_opera and the search for natural random-sources I spent some hours, mainly at night time on my amateurish approach to analogue photography. I focussed on long-time exposures to catch photons of the big ghost fo the area, the Aurora Borealis. Well equipped with two analogue cameras, a Nicon F and a Hasselblad [...]

Day No 11/12 30.11/01/12 2013 First reflections: In Helsinki I will set up the sensors with Arduino only to log some data with the same filters which are still in the sensor housings to get data for comparison with the data recorded at Kilpisjärvi. Back in Linz there I have to dig the field of [...]

Day No 5 24/11/2013 The walk for a new hairdryer and some other needy stuff to solve the problem with transoprt of air into the box situated in the lab. The Box for the sesnor array in the background mounted analogue synthesizer The box from above This a day of sayings. First what you buy [...]

Arrived at the station: So we finally arrived at the Biological Station on Tuesday afternoon, tired but happy. It turned out that against latest information we got in Linz about one week before we departed we are not alone here!!! No there are at least 6 researchers of very different fields here so plenty chances [...]

we build a radiation detector by the recipe from case pyhaejoki and afterwards we went into signal cooking, testing different methods for the reception of chance. the first sample: first-sample-of-geiger-detector this is a graphical print of the signal: every peak is a random event however, we went on with different methods of digital signal [...]

the search for chance in nature is one aspect of our residency in kilpisjaervi. the event of chance is pretty much needed by the means of todays cryptographic methods. strong cryptography relies on good random sources used to created the cryptokey, which will be the essential part, whatever crypto-method someone will use. anyhow, the idea [...]

Special problems of information-theory / special problems of information-society   The project does focus on questions on the one side related to the paradox to use logical machines (RNG – random-number-generators) to produce random(numbers) and on the other side on questions concerning acoustic perception and acoustic information distribution e.g useful for environmental sensory systems and [...]
