DARK WEB

v.05

 

"Dark Web" is an exhibition of work by the Sphere new media artist group addressing security and privacy in our electronic era and is composed of a series of work: Dark Web v.01, Dark Web v.02, Dark Web v.03, Dark Web v.04, and Dark Web v.05. Each of these works approach the role and function of the TOR network, an important tool for maintaining anonymity on the internet, from varying angles seeking to give a physical and emotional presence to the activity traveling through the network itself. Forming the centerpiece of the exhibition on a pedestal in the middle of the gallery is a computer running a TOR node and a monitor displaying real time statistics of the traffic that is passing through it. As these raw numbers slide across the monitor they form the underlying structure of the sculptures and drawings throughout the gallery.

Dark Web v.05 (Letters), (Agents), (Engines), and (Lodges) are digital prints that are composed using Tor web addresses in a similar manner as the sculptures
