let's finally start to evaluate art through imaginary information and not in the context of shannon's information, it's really stupid because we are destroying our own future.

We are in a socio-economic crisis - we think its a crisis of information - capitalism and technology. We are looking for solutions and new perspectives. However, our projects are not based solely on Claude Shannon, who erroneously attributes information theory - we think, with the information theory we made the greatest mistake of the last 70 years. In Infolab we focus on John Archibald Wheelers statement - Its from Bit..

Internet kill your Soul. With various setups and actions we want to point out the necessity of an irrational information theory for a new IT.

The Complex Information

Our IT is shaped by this Shannon's theory of information. It is based on “logically correct” conclusions and ultimately puts individuals and creativity at risk. But a new better information technology should have “complex information” at its centre. Similar to the complex numbers in mathematics, an information content could be composed of an imaginary and a real part.

From Second Nature to Third Nature

In the second nature, nature learned to deal with information. Information was stored in the genetic material. The real part of the information developed through communication possibilities and through natural laws that people agreed on. Humans built information machines and developed a digital capacity for abstraction, especially in the real part of the information. The third nature emerged via a machine-filtered real part of the information. Digital machines referenced themselves and created a new reality. Emotional decisions had less and less significance in it.

The term “Digital Physics” partially coincides with the thinking models of the Infolabs to make these ideas accessible to the public, we run a video clip in the room of 3 weeks (from 20.8 to 10.9) with the following Programm or check our Infolab Youtube channel

The autonomous information network on ships

Ships are islands, they offer autonomous structures. That's why we work a lot on ships. We have been working on ways to reflect the Internet for several years. In order to get an observer status on this powerful information network you have to be able to disconnect yourself from the system. We try that with our own autonomous information network. The first experiments started in 2006. 2011 Armin Medosch wrote a text about it. In 2016 we extended our experiments with SlowScanTv from our ship in Linz. From this followed the information network "7067 -Its not a Test". Based on image transfers, an alternative information network was created. Due to technical and content developments, however, bandwidth of the information network has been further reduced in order to achieve higher ranges.

Milestones were developed in 2016/2017 to make this network accessible to everyone.
