The Design Turn: The project of a laboratory for the interdisciplinary design of knowledge tries to manifest the turn to design that is currently taking place in the natural sciences as a new scientific revolution. With this objective, experiences from the Bauhaus school, the Ulm school and analogue and digital media are also taken up to place design as an integrating force at the center of the different disciplines. In the workshop we try to develop some basic elements for such a laboratory that allow us to transform interdisciplinary design into a field of basic research. In this way, the individual designer will become a laboratory and a network of actors, and the image as a passive surface for the visualization of knowledge will become an active graphic surface that brings together not only electrical circuits, spatial structures, and geometric operations, but also the table as the basic operating unit of the laboratory.

DNA LIVE is an Audio Visual performance, where sound and image are generated from DNA, mRNA and Protein sequences. By translating the DNA, mRNA and Protein sequences of different Genes into MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface), I create MIDI files that are used to generate the sound and control the image variables in a real time environment. The Genes that I use for the live performance are Genes involved in the production, transport and reception of human neurotransmitters. DNA and mRNA are composed of four acids each, and their sequences are translated into four MIDI notes each, one note for each acid.

In this text I explore the use of strategies to create the illusion of reality and how interaction with technological simulations impacts human consciousness. The studied object is a particular system, described in a novel, which I interpret as a “multimedia”. What is notable is that this construction was conceived in 1940. Adolfo Bioy Casares, author of the novel “La invención de Morel”, describes a system for image and sound projection in multidimensional space. The system aims to give the illusion of reality to what is appearance, a simulation. At the time of its publication, the work was included in the fantastic genre. Today it is a text of scientific anticipation. The system described could be carried out with the use of New Technologies.

For this occasion, he presents ASCII, a work based on this legendary American code for the exchange of information. The ASCII language was created in 1963 as a type of "recasting" or evolution of the codes previously used in telegraphy. Since computers only understand numbers, the ASCII code is a numerical representation of a character like "a" or "@."
