Depth Perception Browser Add-on

I’ve been wondering for a while what the world inside a computer would look like. Would the directory structure form some kind of landscape, with hills and mountains? While I didn’t end up investigating the folder hierarchy on my computer, this question made me look differently at the world of web pages. Web pages share a similarity to the folder structure inside your computer, which is their hierarchical nature. In addition to that, elements of a web page have dimensions and are part of a visual layout. So will I really discover a landscape this time? To investigate the structure beneath the surface of a…

Dear IMDb User – Experimental Showcase

For over a year now, I’ve been emailing IMDb users to let them know they’re involved in my Rapping.Reviews project. Every day I send 30 emails, which means I’ve sent approximately 10.000 emails during this time! Its rather time-consuming, but the conversations emerging from this endeavor are incredibly interesting to me and valuable to my ongoing research into topics like privacy, information overload and authorship. As part of a work presentation for tutors and fellow students, I decided to print out some of these email conversations. Herewith I show the scale of my undertaking and allow them a peek into my personal inbox. It just took me a couple…

Web Spaces – 3D Printed Web Pages

Web Spaces – 3D Printed Web Pages is a project I’ve been working on during the Summer Sessions 2016 residency. There’s a nice article about it on the V2_ webpage which introduces the project like this: Jip de Beer’s Web Spaces is an ongoing investigation into the structure of web pages. How can three dimensional beings, like you and me, explore the virtual landscape of web pages? By rendering the building blocks of a web page in three dimensions, the architecture beneath its surface is revealed. You can read the full article on the V2_ website. This project is produced as part…

AdSense Memory [Serious Game]

“You’ve got a memory, but so does the Internet! If you’re using an ad blocker than this game is probably not for you. If you aren’t, then AdSense Memory will raise your adwareness!”

I’ve developed this game to put ads front and center. Instead of stuff you’d rather ignore, in AdSense Memory the advertisements themselves are in the spotlight. The ads are the content.

Interested in my critical reflection on online advertising? Curious what advertisements Google deems appropriate for you? Or just want to play a memory game? Click here.
