BIOS (v1) has been exhibited as part of Nuit Blanche festival – the one-night-a-year when new media and AV art approach public rather than other way around. Kosice, Slovakia, 2017.
“World of plants is a primitive system of inputs and outputs, where light and water constitute inputs and physical growth is an output. World of computers is a meta-system of inputs and outputs, where inputs are zeros and ones and outputs are zeros and ones, usually configured in a somewhat more sophisticated fashion. Acronym BIOS stands for “basic input – output system”. Plants can be considered to be BIOS. BIOS is also software that boots computer. Therefore, plants boot computer….? Wrong statement logic leads either to error or to art.”
Installation BIOS balances on the verge of bio-hacking, new media art and DIY philosophy. An element that connects computational technology and indoor plants is, nevertheless, human and his physicality – his touch and intention being the most natural form of interact-ion/-ivity.
