In an everyday language we use several metaphors for the Internet that assume an immateriality of the technical surrounding. Clouds, flows or (cyber)space implicitly hide a physical infrastructure and shape our imagination. Over the last years the speaker developed different art projects, that address the physical side of those global electronic networks. In this talk, the speaker will give an overview of his work between media archaeological platforms, browser extension, and web applications. Next to that, the speaker will give some technical background of his artworks.
