Life Support Systems: Vanda

Life Support Systems explores ideas of a future existence for living organisms in attempting to achieve the milestone of artificial intelligence. Starting with the orchid Vanda Hybrida, which has both inspirational beauty, as well as behavioral simplicity, an electrolytic system uploads the organism's behavioral characteristics to a computer. Once the living individual is disconnected, its emergent virtual counterpart will continue to generate signals which mimic the original. Kept 'alive' inside computer media such as hard disks, servers, and networks this newly created virtual organism can now exist indefinitely. Mateusz Herczka teaches at the Willem de Kooning Academie, Rotterdam and creates conceptual audiovisual pieces as a software artist and performer.
