Ommatidia live avfly vision algorithm
The fly vision algorithm is based obviously on the eyes of flies, “A compound eye is a visual organ found in arthropods such as insects and crustaceans. It may consist of thousands of ommatidia, which are tiny independent photoreception units that consist of a cornea, lens, and photoreceptor cells which distinguish brightness and color. The image perceived by the arthropod is a combination of inputs from the numerous ommatidia, which are oriented to point in slightly different directions. Compared with single-aperture eyes, compound eyes have poor image resolution; however, they possess a very large view angle and the ability to detect fast movement.”

Laura Netz
Curator, artist and researcher established in London since 2009. Has collaborated with various institutions such as Fonoteca Nacional de Mexico, Museum of Contemporary Art Barcelona, Museum of Transitory Art, or International Symposium on Electronic Arts. In 2015, she launched her independent record label EAM Elektronische-art-and-music. Laura Netz is an active participant in the hacker community. Although the artists creates her own DIY oscillators prototypes based on Hardware Hacking by Nick Collins, and also develops workshops on DIY circuitry for beginners, during Medial Dark Ages performance the artist is using prototypes from: Mutan Monkey Analog Instruments, DIY opto-oscillators; Martin Howse, Detektors; and Cyrille Henry, Noizoid, MMO-3.

Claude Heiland-Allen
Artist from London interested in the complex emergent behaviour of simple systems, unusual geometries, and mathematical aesthetics. From 2005 through 2011 Claude was a member of the GOTO10 collective,
whose mission was to promote Free/Libre Open Source Software in Art. GOTO10 projects included the make art festival (Poitiers, France), the Puredyne GNU/Linux distribution, and the GOSUB10 netlabel. As part of
GOTO10 Claude developed the backend for the make art and GOSUB10 websites, packaged software for Puredyne, and assisted workshops. He released two EPs on the GOSUB10 netlabel. As a software developer,
Claude has developed several programs and libraries used by the wider free software community, including pdlua (extending the Puredata multimedia environment with the Lua programming language), buildtorrent (a program to create .torrent files), and hp2pretty (a program to graph Haskell heap profiling output).
