CARL STRATHEARN

MULTIMEDIA DESIGN

introduction

As technology transcends us all into a virtual maelstrom, it is not the scientist or engineer who will shape these environments; It is the artist, for they are the ones who can create worlds that connect with our mind and soul.

I spent the first two years at University researching and developing my skills in the fields of: programming, animation and philosophy. At college I studied Psychology, Sociology and Social Welfare so the progression to Multimedia was not a straight forward one. However, I feel that I was able to adapt the methodical approaches I learnt at college into my current practise. I have a great passion for Music and Cinema, notably : Jan Švankmajer, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, David Lynch, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Phillip Glass and Steve Reich.

The Symbolic Order Of The Malfunctioning Mechanoid

Since the first humanoid robot graced the silver screen in Metropolis (1927). The mechanoid as a psychotic, malfunctioning icon was born. The ideology that a mechanical construct may function outside of its symbolic order & evolve into a new entity is one that has been replicated in film & literature ever since. But is this phenomena plausible or merely confined to the realms of Science Fiction?
