minus delta t' - and the Red Thread of Media Art

minus delta t' - An experimental setup in electromagnetic space - time dilation by hydrogen radiation from other galaxies and the role of observer status in the information society. Franz XAVER

The basic idea of the radio experiment on Eleonore is that the simultaneously arriving hydrogen signals of the universe testify to events that can originate from different times. This is how the significance of an observation position is derived. Seen from the position of art, it can be assumed that this physical insight can also be applied to information systems or number systems. Everything becomes dependent on the position in a relative frame of reference. Art stands for us in an imaginary number system and information outside Shannon's information theory and has the task of giving our information society new perspectives Details: Donautics and a Flyer .
