This installation invites visitors to physically experience the login process, which normally isn’t visible. The transition from physical to digital states is manifested by an experience in which the perception of one’s body melds with its representation in the form of data. In the installation’s virtual environment, the omnipresent data coalesce into spatial, almost tangible entities, and the point of view assumed is that of the machine. The virtual space is not only populated by the visitor’s own body; other participants as well insinuate themselves into the digital world and influence it. The boundaries between reality and virtuality increasingly blur.
