Renaming the Web - Raphaël Bastide & Louise Drulhe

Renaming the Web is the result of the collaboration between Raphaël Bastide and Louise Drulhe. This installation connects 7 computers that share and display an image through a peer-to-peer network. When this network is weakened by the deliberate reboot of some computers, the image, reflecting the network architecture, is modified.

"Les réseaux constituent la structure de notre société et leur nature dissimulée en font des sujets de recherche riches et fascinants. Nous nous considérons comme des portraitistes de ces objets contemporains, révélant leurs caractéristiques pour tenter de mieux les comprendre".
