From Birthing the Apocalypse to BIG FAT FAIL: (Net) Art as Software Research
Benjamin Grosser, INESC-ID
Abstract : How are numbers on Facebook changing what we "like" and who we "friend?" Why does a bit of nonsense sent via email scare both your mom and the NSA? What makes someone mad when they learn Google can't see where they stand? From net art to robotics to supercuts to e-lit, Ben Grosser constructs interactive experiences, machines, and systems that investigate the cultural, social, and political effects of software.
