Table and chair interface for a web-based artwork
Sawad Brooks + Beth Stryker Table and chair interface for a web-based artwork Various Table and chair interface for a web-based artwork Table and chair interface for a web-based artwork Designed by the artists, this table and chair interface is designed for one user at a time, and the screen image appears on the whole table top. The artists' web site includes video documentation of the installation in situ. The web site states:
"Designed as a Java-based client-server system, dissemiNET is a curated and public participatory system conceived to elaborate a diaspora on the web. Creating a repository for personal and social memory, dissemiNET uses Internet technologies to give visual form to the transactions (deposits, retrievals, and loss) through which we experience memory. Disposed on a boundary between identity (i.e. national and personal) and its dispersal over the web, dissemiNET is conceived to trace connections between people in terms of "digi-texts," creating a cross-linked, communal storytelling space."
DissemiNET was commissioned in part by the Wexner Center for the Arts. It is part of the Walker Art Center's Digital Studies Collection. DissemiNET (1998 - 2001).
