Silhouette series / Evan Roth

„The Silhouette series utilizes the 18th century technique of the same name by representing a subject as an outline cut into a single piece of solid black paper. … Although the technique most commonly depicts a person in profile, it is applied here towards the proportions and shape of the modern day Internet. The individual compositions are composed from pieces of the artist’s own Internet browsing data and based on standardized internet advertising proportions, drawing into question whether these proportions are in reaction to or are a driving force behind the general shape of the web.“

Design for an Entrance to the Internet / Ted Hunt

„A workshop and ongoing research project which uses Sir John Soane’s unrealised architectural speculation ‚Design for an Entrance to London‘ (c 1805) as a means to reimagine how we directly access and perceive the internet as the modern equivalent to the living organism of a city. The workshop questions how we might do this in a way that more critically considers the role access to the internet plays in authoring our interpretation of reality, our shared values, our social potential and human evolution.“
