Albertine - Albertine Meunier =+ou- Catherine Ramus TELEPORTING AN UNKNOWN STATE Teleporting An Unknown State (1994/96) Eduardo Kac "Teleporting an Unknown State" is a biotelematic interactive installation. In other words: it is a computer-based telecommunications piece in which a biological process is an integral part of the work. The installation creates the experience of the Internet as a life-supporting system. In a very dark room a pedestal with earth serves as a nursery for a single seed. Photo: Gumparnat Pasaganon The installation takes the idea of teleportation of particles (and not of matter) out of its scientific context and transposes it to the domain of social interaction enabled by the Internet. A new sense of community and collective responsibility emerges out of this context without the exchange of a single verbal message. This piece operates a dramatic reversal of the regulated unidirectional model imposed by broadcasting standards and the communications industry. Photo: Anna Maria Chupa The exhibition in New Orleans ended on August 9, 1996.

Sure, you might be able to name the European countries or point New York on the map, but does that give you a real understanding of how the world functions? We have gathered a tremendous and informative selection of infographic maps that they should’ve shown us at school to fill this gap. Every single one of these cool maps reveals different fun and interesting facts, which can actually help you draw some pretty interesting conclusions. What makes infographic world maps so engaging is how easy it becomes to conceive graphically presented information.
