Affektenlehre

Theory of affect in recent interactive artwork have broad and very serious roots in the history of music perception. The brainwaves and sound, electroacustic instruments, affective media and biofeedback are inspiring us to the new approaches and new research in art theory. The idea of universal language have a background in constructivism, unism and all avant-garde movement. Nowadays that field is broadly explored by the data mining and big data projects to find relations between image and brain activity, or sound and brain activity.

I had explored the area of dead matter to find also there the affects and redefine affect, explore life forms in diferrent than protein base. Life in the global and cosmic sense. Life more referrend to the systems of communication – absortion, processing and transmission, so in that sense simple red glass as filter is a simple part of possible life system. If the data will make any kind of mechanical activity in the cell that will affect on transmission data on the output this will be the simple form of life. Data and expression are not only manifestations of life – they are code that will make possible transmission of life based on other than human platform. How to root it in the postconceptual art language. It needs to be kind of collection of the affects that could make kind of database for the system that will transform them into referrences between sounds, verbs and images and biofeedback data to let the world translate our culture by our bodies. We could gain the next level of aesthetic as more knowledge based science and create the art for our bodies. Transmit the sublimity directly to stimulate the life experience. Maybe we should to use for that psychodelics, sex-like experiences, and other ways to gain electric field stimulation?
