dc.description.abstractThe Electronic Crop Circle is an interactive installation that allows users from around the world to send messages to nearby alien intelligences that are assumed to be monitoring electromagnetic radiation on and around the planet Earth. The project functions as a communications platform and a research tool. Taking seriously the observation that attempts to communicate with alien intelligences are really exercises in self-talk, the Electronic Crop Circle provides a means for cataloging the content of human desire for interplanetary contact (rather than just the form that various attempts take). It is believed that this will provide a novel window into the human condition, reflecting the way we understand ourselves and - quite literally our place in the universe.en_US
