16 Sessions, 1999



It is often said that on the Internet, you can be anybody. C5's 16 Sessions project takes the opposite tack. Using data gathered from Joel Slayton's interactive installation Not to See a Thing, C5 allows the user to "mingle" his or her identity (in this case a network address) with numerical 3-D data to generate the URLs of random -- but particular to the user -- Web sites, thereby mapping a new set of potential relations between the user and the so-called geography of cyberspace.

Walker Art Center Calendar, C5: 16 Sessions, April 1999.
