Golden Cone.jpg

The Old English verb lācan denotes the fluid movement of water and flame; it can also refer to the creative activity of playing or singing. Triad researches perpetual oscillations that collaborate in the formation of awareness and cognition processes. The concept ∆ Lacanoid is a gestalt - a holistic creation of a unified concept of intermingled patterns, protocols and data packs that compete for domination, and by doing so, co-influence creative being’s autopoiesis. ∆ Lacanoid is a real-time flow of information, structurally designed to interface over the visual and kinaesthetic references that humans require for successful communication. It emits aural emotional patterns. You are invited to come closer and analyse it with various tools. But beware: electronic art uses high voltages, so please respect the personal space of the observed entity - direct contact is strongly discouraged. Presence does not distinguish between real and virtual, only between inner and outer. ∆ Lacanoid is present in the here and now, as well as on the network. Its presence in spatial temporality acts as a mirror-like object-union of technological artefacts. It exists in a structural coupling with the environment(s) of its activity, receives sensory data and runs responsive algorithms. ∆ Lacanoid is inclined to analysis; thus it continuously uses its presence in space to gather data. ∆ Lacanoid observes. It learns. It functions as a full member of the network, as a mainframe computer.
