The Webjay cannibalises the content that he/she collects on different websites or within his/her own artistic productions presented on the internet.

The webjay deconstructs a content and makes it his/her own by rearranging it differently to generate alternative narratives . The result bears the personal hallmark of the performer, it is a unique and original creation which can distort the initial purpose of the messages.

The Web Performance is a work in progress in line with the culture of remix, of recycling, of diversions and daring associations.

WJ-S INSTALLATION - 111ooZoo111 @ Printemps à Saint-Sauveur - Exposition "Micro Macro" - Gare Saint Sauveur Lille

From 21 May 2014 to 15 September 2014

Gare Saint Sauveur

The 111oOzOo111 installation invites the audience to discover a few hundreds of online projects, "exhibited" on a mini network of computers, all connected to the Internet. A surfing "bot" is installed on the computers and allows an automatic surf on 30 screens simultaneously. The navigation is done in real time through a selection of online art pieces (mèmes, glitches, animated gifs, lolcats…) created by international net artists who divert and deconstruct social networks and Web2.0 landscapes. The multiscreens webjays system is like a reduced model of the internet, a metaphor of its codes specificities and of the way information flows and appears on the web.
