Alerting Infrastructure! is a physical hit counter that translates hits to the web site of an organization into interior damage of the physical building that web site or organization represents. The focus of the piece is to amplify the concern that physical spaces are slowly losing ground to their virtual counterparts. The amount of structural damage to the building directly correlates to the amount of exposure and attention the web site gets, thus exposing the physical structure’s temporal existence.
The project, by Jonah Brucker-Cohen, is currently installed at the Irish Museum of Contemporary Art, in Dublin. Visit the museum’s website to contribute to the distruction process…
