From what I can figure out, the tradtional Monotype keyboard has been replaced with a computer that produces the punchcard program for the Monotype caster. The hybridity between old and new media here is very exciting.

Nervous Structure (field) (2012) (by Cristobal Mendoza)
Made in collaboration by Annica Cuppetelli and Cristobal Mendoza, Nervous Structure (Field) is an installation piece designed to confuse and then illuminate the line between the physical and digital. 144 vertical lines are strung and then 144 lines of light are projected on to them. The lines of light respond to the movement of visitors and the result is a hypnotic field of waves and moire patterns.

Videorative Portrait of Randall Okita (by Sergio Albiac)
“Painting a Videorative portrait (a generative, narrative and interactive video portrait) starts with collecting personal videos of the person portrayed, tagged by him/her with relevant concepts and descriptions. Then, using a custom developed tool, the artist “paints with meanings” and generates a video portrait, subtitled with generative personal narratives. In the interactive installation version of the work, the viewer can “navigate” through the subject’s mind, opening his/her video memories, accessing their thoughts and revealing hidden connections between the meanings, using real time access to Wikipedia to infer related emotional states. These “data visualizations” create new and unexpected interpretations of the portrait.” (http://www.sergioalbiac.com/videorative-portrait-post/)
