Ralf Baecker’s intriguing use of semiconductor crystals, “‘Irrational Computing’ is not supposed to ‘function’ – its aim is to search for the poetic elements on the border between ‘accuracy’ and ‘chaos'” – via triangulationblog.com
IRRATIONAL COMPUTING is an artistic test of material, esthetics and potentials of the digital. The installation is based on semiconductor crystals – the basic commodity of information technology. It consists of five interlinked modules that use the varied electrical and mechanical particularities and characteristics of crystals and minerals and, through their networking, form a kind of primitive macroscopic signal processor.
