Cultural Matter: Annet Dekker on Deli Near .info (Pt.II)

The internet is dominated by controlling and selecting (and censoring) structures and algorithms. Dutch artist Harm van den Dorpel questioned how he as an artist could intervene in these structures, and built a complete up and running digital social network Delinear.info.

Preservation

It revolves around the progressive disappearance of a mode of public transport in the urban landscape. The game is made into an installation and the story is a metaphor for the changes in public space and infrastructure in the US. A both medium specific and politically relevant work - that pushes...
