Portrait of a Network
Presented at the IDA Finals, Graduation Exhibition
Portrait of a Network is a custom screen displaying a website with a visual composition. This composition changes with the internet connection that the object uses to reach the website. The site uses information from the internet connection, its speed and IP address, to generate the composition. This means that the work changes when it is put on display on different locations. But also when the location where it is exhibited changes from internet provider, for example.
The pictures of clouds used in the work were shot at the location of the data center were the website is hosted.
