1. There is "sympathy" between humans and computers, there are "feelings".
1.1 In both directions.
2. There are new theories about time. Maybe time doesn't even exist!
3. People meet and exchange information. There are institutions such as The Hayward that invite artists such as myself to talk to people. I suspect it is just data that they
want to know about each other.
4. Art is what is happening when data meet beautifully. This is very rare.

Miltos Manetas is an internationally renowned artist born in Greece in 1964. He lives in London and Los Angeles and his Internet Paintings ( are exhibited at the gallery Blow de la Barra in London ( from 27 January 2007.
Manetas makes websites that are art works, they hang on the internet as a painting hang on the walls of a museum. Manetas signs them as unique pieces and collectors buy them as such. (see:
In 2000, he started Neen (, a new art movement.

Bio Mapping in Lambeth

How do you feel about the area that you live in?
Which areas do you have a physical and emotional response to?

The Hayward are running workshops with artist Christian Nold to create bio maps of areas in Brixton and Clapham.

The Bio Mapping tool allows the wearer to record their Galvanic Skin Response (GSR), which is a simple indicator of emotional arousal, in conjunction with their geographical location. This can be used to plot a map that highlights points of high and low arousal. By sharing this data we can construct maps that visualise where we as a community feel stressed and excited

These workshops involve a walk around the area followed by a download session where your physical responses are downloaded and mapped on Google Earth

These workshops are FREE and promise to be a fascinating insight into your community

It is strongly recommended that you register your interest beforehand as the number of participants has to be limited to a maximum of 10

Meeting and download point:
Brixton - Monday 29 Jan. Meet at Brixton Library at 2.30pm
Clapham - Monday 12 Feb. Meet at Clapham City Learning Centre

For more information and to register your interest in either of these workshops please e-mail
