Network dynamics prioritize access to the information based on their internal factors like frequency of usage, amount of likes, or the virality of the content.
As we tap and click through the endless chunks of information, our agency is affected by the logic of the system.
These calculus systems create a kind of agency in the process of accessing, knowing, and acting upon information.
"Forward Slash" aims at presenting the agency of the network platforms in the interactions between the human and digital world, by exploring the internet platforms as emergent, fluid, active, and living matter.
"Forward Slash" is a software-based Audio Visual installation, created by using a virtual mouse, surfing the internet by randomly clicking and accessing different pages and contents. The search results create an evolving matter in a 3d hyperspace that outputs vague and uncertain bits of information.
"Forward Slash" is premiered At Simultan Festival 2020.
