Go with the flow

Installation view: Fluide Mediale, STUDIO FOR ARTISTIC RESEARCH (2019)

The artwork titled Go with the flow consists of a printed towel hanging on a clothesline in the room. The print features a captcha image that has been roughly pixelated due to the enlargement. Captchas are used on the internet to differentiate between human users and computer programs by presenting images of letters or solving arithmetic problems. In the context of the internet, the captcha would ask the user to decipher the wavy text Go with the Flow and enter it into a field. By bringing the captcha from the virtual space to the material space, the functions are reversed – instead of the text being impossible to enter, now it becomes possible to interpret the meaning of the sentence and the connection between the text and towel as form and content.
