BIPS [Billion Instructions per Second] by Shahab Shahali / Donya Fazelnia

A wave of data is coming and the human’s entryway is wide. Inputs are coming from everywhere to pass through the gateway. At first, you think they are controllable and you can choose which one to process and which one to put aside. Data is still coming, orbiting around their circuits with an unprecedented speed. Gradually, you notice what is pushed aside is your own mind. The media find their way in while human mind will be the perfect reflection of these roads and dead ends. Media will never stop. In a cycle of production/reproduction of inputs, they interpret the world and our worldly perceptions. What remains is a free human in chains.

 

(/ˈnuqt'a/) is a colloquial term used in Farsi meaning dot.
A Project by NULLSIGHT, Media arts collective from Tehran, collection of conceptual, practical, and technology-oriented objects, contributing to the promotion of the media-art business.
What defines the identity of distinction is where the self ends and the other begins: the point in which the individual body and the social framework is shaped. NOXTE is based on this idea of liberation of bodies and going beyond boundaries.
The mystical revelation & free exploration of mind & soul while experiencing the trauma of living in the third world country, limitations, boundaries and different kind of social orders, are what NOXTE is trying to observe & share as a different value of art.
The idea of going beyond the boundaries, ignoring the reality & seeking in deeper concepts is the manifest in how the works are selected: the objects that lost their original function for their were merely used decoratively; similar to body itself that is now an old-fashioned entity, falling to pieces in different frameworks.
