FAMILIARS is an immersive installation that materialises the presence, function,
and fragility of the unseen logistical infrastructures which underpin the modern
world, yet are often coded as separate to society.
Exploiting Brighton’s presence and location in this infrastructure, the piece
creates a mappable representation by directly intercepting logistical signals
broadcast locally by air, sea, and train cargo transport and transmuting the
raw data into ambisonics and projected visualisations. These facets invite
exploration by the audience, creating intimacy and familiarity with a system
that is designed to be invisible, and only noticed when it malfunctions or fails.
Pinba is a MySQL storage engine that acts as a realtime monitoring/statistics
server for PHP using MySQL as a read-only interface.
It accumulates and processes data sent over UDP by multiple PHP processes and
displays statistics in a nice human-readable form of simple “reports”, also
providing read-only interface to the raw data in order to make possible
generation of more sophisticated reports and stats.
