Like the beginning of the twentieth century, physics and the life sciences hold a powerful fascination for young artists of today. They engage with system transformations, powered frequency modulators, the pulverization of metals, the breakdown of liquids, dynamic geometry, morphogenesis, particle accelerators, and the design of interfaces between machines and their users. They each do this in their own individual way, in close alliance and with frictions to their exuberant imagination, their impatience, and their strong drive to realize what they are seeking to realize. artistic research is not work on a concept, but working and concentrating on individual things. Interface design has emerged as a focus where contrasting concepts of creative work with and on computer- centred media confront each other. This boundary, which i think is more aptly named in german Schnittstelle (cut- off line), at once both separates and joins two different spheres: on the one side the world of those who utilize the machines, and on the other the world of active machines and programmes. Technological developments, as well as the dominant media concepts of the 1990s, aimed at making the boundary between the two imperceptible. The idea was that one should learn to use a computer without noticing that one is dealing with an algorithmically constructed machine for calculations and simulations. one should be able to immerse oneself in a so-called virtual reality without feeling and, even more, without knowing that one is dealing with a construction of surfaces and time responses that are precisely pre-structured and calculated. For the user the computer was presented like a camera obscura; one can take pleasure in its effects and one can work with it, but one does notneed access to the way it functions. Against the dominant trend of smooth- functioning technological and semiological ergonomics various artists continued to experiment in collaboration with programmers, physicists, and engineers on how it would be possible to enable and de
