is a collective, dynamical installation that allows
small groups of participants to interact with virtual
objects, and with each other, in real time. People are
represented by the results of their activities. Optical
sensors monitor the movement of the participants' hands.
Users weave trajectories by grouping elements and moving
attractors sets. The objects compete each with other,
each reacting with the other, or provoke the other's
verbal or symbolic interchanges. The objects are
not entirely frozen in advance, but it is possible to
change their tissues, sources and sequences. What arises
is a dynamic system of variables quantities and
awareness. (Lisek 2002).
The essential point of stack(meta)Weaver is feed-back.
The signs by which its source code is composed get accessible
to users manipulation and join the others alphabets
on the program desktop. Next, their movement causes
changes in the source code and so on
The signals are picked up by the system of sensors.
After the digitalization they are sent to the programs
that operate the installation. This is the program created
by Robert Lisek and Sz.Kuzniarz. Its practical value
will only be determined through extensive experimentation.
It would become truly overpowering if the system became
to rewrite its own source code and transformed itself
into something entirely different than it once was.
