Dates of creation

1992 - 2014

Level of archival description

Series

Extent and Medium

  • approximately 10,200 digital files (108 GB)

Scope and Content

Series 3, Projects and events, 1992 – 2014, documents each major installation of the Hyposurface project and consists of more than 10,000 digital files. These files include exhibition layout planning, Aegis simulator software demonstrating Hyposurface, event photographs and video, and ACDC and Aegis software related to specific events. This series also includes the majority of the material Paul Steenhuisen G5 Mac computer and the related Hyposurface audio installations. The bulk of the materials dates from 2000 – 2007.

Events represented include Venice Biennale (Venice, 2000); CeBIT Technology Fair (Hannover, Germany, 2002); International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS, Chicago, 2006); BIO exhibition (Boston, 2007); and the Canadian Centre for Architecture (Montreal, 2013-2014). This series also contains a number of unidentified projects, including projects in Brisbane, Australia; Amsterdam, the Netherlands; and possibly Russia and Spain. There is also video documentation related to a Hyposurface proposal for BMW, as well as what appears to be a tour of Kuka Robotics staff through dECOi’s laboratory.

This series contains nearly 3100 Aegis pattern files, which are identifiable by their file extension (.aeg). An additional 3100 files are plain text files, executable files, or an unidentified format, and appear to relate to other dECOi software. This series notably contains more than 2000 audio files related to the Paul Steenhuisen installations. The rest of the series contains largely still images and video, as well as a small number of AutoCAD and Rhino files.

This series overlaps with Series 2: Software and related documentation. This series contains only software related to a specific project or event, while Series 2 contains software generally related to Hyposurface.

Reference Number

AP170.S3

Physical Description

Some external references for some CAD materials are missing. For access to video files, it is recommended to use VLC media player on a Windows operating system. There are more than 3800 files with an unrecognized file type in this series. Nearly 3100 of these are Aegis pattern files. The remaining 700 files are largely related to other dECOi software, and also include a number of corrupted JPEG and Bitmap images.

Arrangement

Files in this series were grouped by project or event. The projects and events are listed in rough chronological order.
