Today: JODI, Tide, 2016. Find it at https://x20xx.com/tide.html.
JODI - the art collective consisting of Joan Heemskerk (NL, 1968) and Dirk Paesmans (BE, 1965) - pioneered web-based art in the mid-90s. In a medium-specific way, they (de)construct and analyze the languages of new media: from visual aesthetics to interface elements, from codes and features to errors and viruses. They challenge the relationship between technology and users by subverting our expectations about the functionalities and conventions of the systems that we depend upon every day. The work Tide is one of a series of "one-off" HTML experiments.
