About this page
This website is built upon a selfmade CMS that serves from folders and textfiles on this server with php. The Stream is connected to a Mediawiki as a backend. I use Angularjs to connect to the API and place the content.
Software has taken command of our daily life. It is omnipresent and most of our Western society would come to a halt without it. At the same time software has become so ordinary, that it is often overlooked. Software is taken for granted while it is increasingly entangled in our life and continuously adopts new tasks.
This work is a critical and artistic examination of Software and Software Art.
How can artistic methods be used to elicit critical reflection of software? How does Software reflect on the surfaces of our daily life?
Different kinds of software are part of the exhibition, that show how software expresses itself. A printer, that prints its own publication, a flip-dot matrix, which shows different theses, an iPod which reads its own memory or a boot-loader presenting the exhibition. (And the ones looking for wifi here, may not find internet, but a poem made of many different wifi hotspots)
