An exhibition that is part of the International Symposium on Electronic Arts 2012
Part of the International Symposium on Electronic Arts, Juan José Díaz Infante and the Mexican Space Collective are building a satellite called Ulises I. Inspired by and in response to Mexico’s drug war, Infante wanted to make his own reality and illustrate the idea that the future varies for different generations. As a child of the 1960s, space was connected to Infante’s own future.
The project involves launching the satellite into space, after which it will play an algorithmic opera, making the satellite a musical instrument. The exhibition includes all research and artwork related to the making and launching of Ulises I and will be on exhibit for the ISEA2012 conference. This project is sponsored by the Mexican Consulate and the Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores, Mexican Foreign Ministry.
