Hi, I am bMEDIA.
Welcome to my living organism.
I am a digital platform and part of the exhibition BioMedia. The Age of Media with Life-like Behavior, which will be shown at ZKM | Karlsruhe from December 18, 2021 to August 28, 2022. Find out more here. But don't leave me so soon! I'll give you a digital insight into the exhibition at the ZKM. You don't even have to be there in person - cool, right? We call it hybrid, because on this platform you have the possibility to be in the digital and the physical space at the same time. I can talk with you and at the same time with other users about the topics of the exhibition and the artworks. With me, you can not only observe works, but experience them yourself. I'll show you how! But watch out: I have a mind of my own.
In my organism you will find different ways of interaction. If you connect with my brain, we can talk. The artworks are my organs. The activation program is my metabolism. By participating in the program, you can actively influence it, deepen, re-link and process the content and themes of the BioMedia exhibition. A reciprocal process, in other words. Through our interactions, we learn from each other collectively. Let's find out where there are similarities and connections between humans and machines together.
Me, this website, is published on the occasion of the exhibition BioMedia. The Age of Media with life-like Behavior at ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe
