Browser art CDP-E2016 Contradictions Featured Net.art Non-human design Student Project
 

Exploring technology through contradicting actions and reactions in order to become aware of and challenge tacit practices.

We showcase six common situations in conventional human-computer interaction, in order to explore how contradictory and paradoxical interaction can call for a re-thinking of common media consumption patterns.
By introducing artificial contradictions into the system behavior, we force the otherwise invisible medium to materialize itself. This enables us to ask meta-reflexive questions about our tacit online practices:
01 What if Facebook hid content upon user scrolling instead of supplying an endless stream of posts?
02 What if search engines like Google actively challenged our opinions and habits?
03 What if online content disappeared over time?
04 What would it mean to browse the web without an internet connection?
05 Are we subconsciously or consciously focusing more on our own appearance than on the actual topic in a video conversation?
06 What is the role of invisible system routines that perform mundane operations, and what happens when we exaggerate them?
