Pall Thayer – PDF Version

BIOGRAPHY

Recently it seems all his links to old works are broken as they were hosted in Iceland.

Many of Pall’s works follow the “code as the art” principle.

GEN ART CONNECTIONS

Creates many works using:

  • Random Numbers
  • Functions & Code – Perl, Processing, PureData
  • Multi-User Input
  • Data Sets – Flickr, Blogger, GPS

SELF PORTRAITS

Pall has been doing a variety of interesting self-portraits in the past few years.

On Everything

  • (2006)
  • gathers images and text from Flickr and Blogger, processes them to generate imagery and sound.
  • “It reflects everything while reflecting on nothing.”

LOOKING FOR THE NEW UNIVERSAL HARMONY

  • (2002)
  • sound and visuals are based on your ip address and previous users
  • each click by a user is recorded in a database for future users
  • it is up to the user to find the harmony
  • http://rhizome.org/artbase/artwork/9678/

Choirpiece for four computers

  • (2001) originally
  • exhibited three times
  • One conductor and four choir computers. The conductor chooses a note and delegates it to the choir over a network connection.
  • The first exhibit used old macs; newer ones used new imacs which lacked the personality of the older macs.
