[ISEA2006] Artist Statement: Norimichi Hirakawa – DriftNet (2005)

Artist Statement

Theme: Pacific Rim. Venue: Container Culture, South Hall

In DriftNet, Hirakawa uses “information flotsam” from the worldwide web by surfing links with an information agent. The installation space is a “virtual surf,” where websites surge constantly like waves. The texture of each wave is generated by a screen shot of a real website, and the magnitude of the wave is determined by the length of the download.
