Our best of the web this week. Finds include Third Ear Transmission – a holographic memorial, new music from Berlin-based producer Lotic, and Finland creates an emoji for sauna. By Lighthouse Artistic Director Juha van 't Zelfde, who is half Finnish by the way!

THIRD EAR TRANSMISSION
Hyperdub boss Kode9 unveils a holographic collaboration with The Spaceape and Lawrence Lek. RIP Stephen Samuel Gordon.

KODE9
“When the cold wind of death decides to blow through your area, it tends to leave a trail of zeros,” Kode9 – Interview by Laurent Fintoni, The Fader.

A very earnest and moving interview with Steve Goodman (Kode9), about losing two close friends and collaborators, the Spaceape and DJ Rashad, and making something out of nothing.

STICKY DRAMA
A new exhibition by artist Jon Rafman and a new album by musician Oneohtrix Point Never come together in this intense and incredible L.A.R.P. music video that looks like Matthew Barney directing Hunger Games.

THE SOUND OF STORY
Very proud of Team Lighthouse for organising such an event in Brighton.

FINLAND LAUNCHES OWN EMOJIS
Nobody outside of Finland will ever know what they mean.

ASMR
Fascinated by autonomous sensory meridian response, which has Progress Bar alumnae Claire Tolan and Holly Herndon amongst its supporters. Maybe ASMR is this popular because it is something physical, not virtual? Read more about Claire and ASMR in this article by Laura Snapes in the Guardian.

GUGGENHEIM ONLINE EXHIBITION
“Åzone isn’t just an exhibit about technology, the exhibition is the technology—and the digital architecture upon which the exhibition is built is constantly morphing and changing as long as visitors are participating in it.” – Troy Therrien, curator of architecture and digital initiatives at the Guggenheim, in this interview with Meg Miller for Fast Co Design. One of the most interesting ‘things’ that’s currently out there.

Unsocial media, then.

NEW LOTIC
New Lotic. NEW LOTIC! One of my favourite producers on social media, worth a follow on Twitter and Instagram.
