:// work in NETescopio:


Systaime is one of the artists who initiated the "Facebook art" through the account ʞooqǝɔɐɟ. In this work, the artist generates a chaotic version of this social network in which much of the navigation is simulated and automated. While we can still interact by clicking, our intervention only seems to generate even more disorder, and result in a cascade of small windows that open frantically and with a will of their own.


The work makes us reflect on our own participation in networks and their projection into a dystopian future. Systems that seem to have their own rules -that we do not even know-, with algorithms that lead us where we do not necessarily want to go -but that we end up accepting as a result of our decisions- and in which our interactions are just formalisms so that, hypnotically, we continue to feed Big Data collecting systems.
