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.
