The ap project [Martin Howse and Jonathan
Kemp] is concerned with the expansion and contraction of the notion
of an operating system within technology and the social.
ap aims towards the liberation of data
generation from an imposed model and architecture [or any fixed
operating system in its widest sense].
The ap02 system has been used in performances
at festivals in Holland, Sweden, Iceland, Germany in Autumn 2002
and in Norway, France, Scotland and London in 2003.
ap02 software enables the experimental insertion
hardware modules [robot dj decks, film transfer modules] and performers
into a baroque, networked, cellular system. ap02 presents a promiscuous
model of data generation and self-display, making use of a virtual
machine architecture. Reconfigurable code is interwoven with and
determined by network and environmental data. The gdapp [generic
data] matrix application is used to access, manipulate and manifest
complex underlying data flows and metrics.
