Fuzzy Logic Machine BY Gabriela Gordillo, Irene Rodenas

“Fuzzy Logic Machine” is an interface that manifests its spatial state through sound and light and can be driven by a participant. The model sets a frame to explore the conditions of an enclosed system (machine), through the affections of a second entity (human) that infers in its process, and uses it as an abstract language. The interface allows a dialog within itself and towards the others by inviting more than one participant to interact and play through the influence of each other’s actions. The development of this process reflects on the need of self-made systems that use technology towards intuition that can start by working in the realm of human sensitivity and actual scale. The motivation behind it comes from a question towards subjectivity, intending to draw a scheme of the thresholds behind ambiguity.

Gabriela Gordillo (b. 1986, Mexico City, Mexico) has received her BA in Visual Communication (2009) from Centro de Diseño Cine y Televisión (MX), and her MA in Interface Cultures (2018), Kunstuniversität Linz (AT). In her work she explores the relation between image and sound through interfaces that involve design and technology, to draw abstract systems of objective and subjective parameters. Her artistic process is a method to materialize an intuition, in which the elements of time, context, and dialogue, play a role in the divergences of the output. She has performed and exhibited in Mexico, Canada, Austria, and UK, in individual and collective projects. She currently lives and works in Linz, Austria.
Irene Ródenas (b. 1992, Barcelona, Spain) has received her BA in Product Design (2015), from Elisava School of Design and Engineering of Barcelona (ES) and MA candidate at Interface Cultures from the Kunstuniversität Linz (AT). Her focus is on tangible interfaces in the context of the digital era, researching on from different perspectives, educational methods and collaborative interactions, in order to explore our relation with machines and how those can affect our perceptions and senses. She has exhibited her work in Austria, UK, and Germany, in individual and collective projects. Currently she lives and works in Barcelona, Spain.
