Nowhere

(2005)

Nowhere is a three-dimensional milling machine that carves a landscape relief on a 70x70x10cm large block of hard foam. The machine receives a stream of live search requests from the german search engines metager and metager2 via the internet.

The users search movements erode rivers and canyons on the surface. Search requests that shoot through the internet just for a fraction of a second and generate an answere on the searchers screen, cause the machine to write a constant growing sculpture into the space. The continuous stream of alternating search requests defines form and rhythm of this process.


Materials: PC, aluminium profiles, stepper motors, custom electronics, custom software
In cooperation with metager and metager2
