There's no place like house, Net Art
A house, for all intense purposes, looks like a static object. But a house is actually in constant
movement, made up of and indeed constantly altered by many intersecting and dynamic interests from both within and without. In this way a house is seen as a navigation through a negotiated datascape, and a contested gathering of many conflicting demands. This work attempts to show how various trajectories of data that surround and indeed intersect with a house render it as a moving project.
